Memorial Day Parade and Service

Borough of Roselle Park

On Monday, May 29, 2023, the Borough of Roselle Park will be holding its annual Memorial Day Celebration, consisting of a parade and solemn service.

The day’s events will begin with the parade, commencing at 10:00 a.m. Lineup will begin promptly at 9:00 a.m. at Sherman Elementary School. The parade will be led by the Roselle Park Police Department and Newark Mounted Police. Roselle Park American Legion Post 60 and the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts of Roselle Park will follow, along with Mayor Joseph Signorello III and the members of the Borough Council. Marching bands from the Roselle Park School District and the Roselle Park Board of Education will also be featured in the parade.

The parade will proceed westbound along the East Grant Avenue corridor toward Chestnut Street, turning right onto Chestnut Street and ultimately dispersing at Roselle Park Veterans Memorial Library where a solemn outdoor memorial service will be held. This meaningful ceremony will feature a tribute to Roselle Park’s own “Hometown Heroes.” All residents are encouraged to join in to honor those who sacrificed their lives for the freedom we enjoy today.

“I look forward to our annual Memorial Day Parade,” said Mayor Joe Signorello. “I can’t imagine a better way to spend the day than seeing our community come together to honor the men and women who have sacrificed everything defending our nation. I hope to see many of you at the parade and service dedicated to these fallen heroes. A huge ‘Thank you’ to everyone involved in making this event possible.”
