KENILWORTH, NJ - A political truck parade is set to drive through Kenilworth Saturday morning. Residents might want to allow for some extra drive-time as the parade will go through Michigan Avenue and the Boulevard.
Organizers of the “Trump Truck Parade” announced on their website that they will leave from the AMC Mountainside 10 on Route 22 in Mountainside at 10 a.m., before meeting up with supporters in Garwood and heading to a rally in North Bedminster. The plan is to roll through Kenilworth along the way.
“Please show up early to ensure a spot because of high attendance expected,” the organizers write. “We will then merge with another lot full of Trump supporters in Garwood and continue on.”
On Wednesday the police department gave no indication that the parade would require local street closures, and stated they are ready and prepared.
Truck rallies have become commonplace among the president’s supporters. The “MAGA Drag the Interstate Rally” visited Clark Oct. 3, bringing trucks with custom paint jobs in support of re-electing the president, including one that read “All Aboard the Trump Train.”
And with flags waving, horns honking and lights flashing, a similar parade of Trump supporters rolled through Hillsborough Oct. 11 with hundreds of pick-up trucks, SUVs, recreational vehicles, tractor-trailers, convertibles, passenger cars and motorcycles flying the American flag and Trump flags.
