RANDOLPH, NJ- With clear blue skies and blazing temperatures that climbed into the 90's, the Randolph Kiwanis Freedom Parade carried on to the delight of children and residents who lined the streets of town on Saturday June 30. 

The Freedom Parade - one of the largest Fourth of July weekend  parades in New Jersey - is sponsored and organized by the all-volunteer, not-for-profit Randolph Kiwanis Club in partnership with Randolph Township.

Randolph VFW Post 7333 handled the Color Guard duties, displaying our nations flag at the front of the parade.  Other military units and  vehicles, community groups, girl and boy scouts, Randolph's volunteer fire and EMS departments, Township Council members, bands, clowns, and more rounded out the marchers in the parade.

Starting at Mount Fern Methodist Church, on Quaker Church Road, the parade proceeded down Quaker Church Road, took a right onto Center Grove Road, crossed Route 10, and finished up at the lower parking lot of the County College of Morris.

Miss New Jersey, Miss North Jersey, and Miss Tri-County all shook off the heat to ride in the back of convertibles and be part of the parade. Two of those convertibles were loaned to the parade by Randolph residents Todd Sawyer and Sean Lyons, the new owners of the auto dealership at the corner of Rt. 10 and Canfield Ave, which is now renamed Sawyer-Lyons Buick GMC.

Mayor Mark Forstenhausler, along with Township Council members Lance Tkacs and Joanne Veech also rode in convertibles, tossing candy to children along the route. After the parade ended, the afternoon continued with the Freedom Festival in the CCM parking lot. The three day festivity concluded on Saturday evening with the fireworks display.

Randolph Diner: Serving Up the Next Version of the Diner Experience

July 16, 2018

RANDOLPH, NJ- A diner, back in the early days of diners, typically referred to a restaurant that resembled a dining car on a train.

The diner became a ...
