On a recent May Sunday our Mile Square babies, toddlers and big kids showed us their finest in the Hoboken Historical Museum's Seventh Annual Hoboken Baby Parade. Strutting down the Hudson River walkway you could spot butterflies and princesses, cooks and politicians, clowns and tigers all disguised as our neighborhood youth.
Our list of thanks grows longer every year as more families and family-friendly businesses flock to our town. Kudos to all of the creative families who joined the celebration, despite the threat of rain. Thank you to our local policemen who also helped us this year by stopping traffic as the Parade passed by the construction on Pier C.
We extend our gratitude to all of our sponsors who support the Parade-and are themselves dedicated to our town's family community. Special thanks to our Double Stroller Trophy sponsors: Hoboken Pediatrics, Brescia-D'Alberti-Migliaccio, Dental Associates of Hoboken and Hoboken Pediatric Dentistry, IRMS at Saint Barnabas, David L.
