FLEMINGTON, NJ – The borough will host the annual Hunterdon Holiday Parade on Sunday, Dec. 4.

The county’s Chamber of Commerce sponsors the event, and has named Flemington’s Edna Pedrick as this year’s grand marshal. The event begins at 5 p.m. on Main Street.

County Clerk Mary Melfi praised the choice of Pedrick.

"How wonderful to honor someone like Grand Marshal Edna Pedrick,” Melfi said in a press release. “She has given so much of her time and been such a good friend to the county, to Flemington Borough, and to me personally,” she added. Melfi is the chair of parade.

Pedrick has been a volunteer for the borough for decades. She has served as on the Borough Planning Board and has been instrumental in the borough’s Beautification Committee and the Shade Tree Commission.

For many years, Pedrick would drive around town watering planters from milk jugs she kept in the trunk of her car. She then moved on to driving the water tanker truck to keep Flemington looking beautiful.

Pedrick has been involved since the inception of the Samuel Fleming House museum and was instrumental in having the borough purchase this property. She spends hours each month taking care of the museum and property.

For 15 years, Pedrick organized the Clean Communities Program for the borough, overseeing the volunteers work on cleanup days and even preparing food to thank them for their efforts.

The Chamber is also excited about the musical performances it has added to the parade line up this year, including Brooklyn United Marching Band, Aqua String Mummers Band and St. Ann’s of Hampton Pipes and Drums.

In addition, the Hunterdon Central Red Devil Marching Band will be present. All local businesses and community groups are encouraged to participate in the annual event.
