HAWTHORNE, NJ - Each year, the borough of Hawthorne is host to one of the largest Memorial Day parades in the area.  Drawing floats and bands from no small distance, Hawthorne recognizes American fallen military personnel in a grand way.  Given a merciful break in the heat and rain which has marked the season thus far, the weather was ideal for the holiday.  The occasion began with a service held at the Borough Hall which was then followed by the parade, festively snaking its way through some of the main thoroughfares of the town.

Marching bands from Hawthorne and out of town, a contingent of Marines, dance troupes, veterans, local government, county and local police, fire, emergency services, local businesses, Scouts, military reenactors, churches, antique car collectors, and more were to be found in the patriotic procession which paid homage to those who fell in the service of the United States. 

The streets were lined with spectators, young and old, and many of whom brought their own folding chairs to watch and cheer from the sidewalks.  Pictures taken by TAPinto Hawthorne can be found in the carousel at the top of the page.
