ROSELLE PARK, NJ - The Borough of Roselle Park will be hosting the community’s first annual “Celebration of Colors and Pride Month on Saturday, August 18, from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Roselle Park High School’s Herm Shaw Field.

The event includes guest speaker Jane Clementi (the mother of Tyler Clemente), performances, entertainment, giveaways, games by the recreation committee, education stations from statewide LGBTQ organizations, and free unlimited fun for all age groups.

The event also includes a “Celebration of Colors,” to serve as a medium to unite and celebrate a diverse community. It is a color run without the ‘run,’ where everyone will receive a bag of nontoxic color powder to color each other with the hope that many will leave the event with a stronger commitment to celebrating the Borough’s diverse community.
