MONTVILLE, NJ – The Montville Township Police Department announced its policy on birthday and special occasion parades following a letter from the state restricting graduations and so-called “wave parades.”

Residents had been a little confused about whether birthday parades, in which the family stays on the porch and cars roll by, waving and smiling, were allowed.

The governor and his administrators clarified what they meant in the letter – “Let's say it's a senior on their front porch with their parents. Those vehicles can go by,” State Police Col. Patrick Callahan stated on May 11 (read the full story here).

The Montville Township Police Department has been conducting birthday parades since March, according to Chief Andrew Caggiano.

“The police department is now preparing to return to our normal duties,” he said. “In addition, when the governor begins to lift some of these restrictions, we want to be in the best possible position to serve the public. With that in mind, we are going to cease doing these parades as of May 22, though we will honor those requests that we have already committed to.”
