HAWTHORNE, NJ - The Borough of Hawthorne hosted its annual Memorial Day parade Sunday, stepping off at 1:30 p.m.  A memorial service was held at the Municipal Building at noon, paying tribute to those servicemen and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for the United States.

The Memorial Parade in Hawthorne is a famous one in North Jersey, attracting organizations near and far to participate in what is a route just shy of two miles.  With clear, sunny skies, a departure from a season marked by rain, and hovering around 80 degrees, the weather was ideal for a parade.  The participants started from the vicinity of Rea Avenue and Lafayette Avenue, making their way down Vreeland, turning left onto Parmelee Avenue, then left again onto Diamond Bridge Avenue, then left northbound on Lafayette Avenue, passing the reviewing stand at the Municipal Building where Mayor Richard Goldberg announced the participatory organizations as they marched past.
