It was joy in the streets of Secaucus on June 3 as nearly 4,000 people helped mark the 100th anniversary of the town, the second part of a year long celebration that included a parade and a fair at the high school. To the honking of horns, the wailing of sirens and the tuneful presentations of three marching bands, politicians in their best suits and paraders in multi-colored costumes walked the streets from town hall to the high school, and then spent hours partying. Although former Mayor Anthony Just did not make an appearance, almost everyone else did, including two former mayors, James Moore and Paul Amico, the current mayor and council, former Gubernatorial candidate Jim McGreevy and an unexpected visit from former governor (and campaigning senate hopeful) Jim Florio Antique cars rolled through the streets as did the floats from each of the schools, followed by troops of boy scouts and girl scouts, Mrs. Hudson County, monstrously large tow trucks from Roadmasters, vehicles from United Parcel Service, Fire trucks from the Secaucus Volunteer Fire Department and various vehicles from the Jersey City Medical Center's Emergency Management Team. Secaucus severed ties with North Bergen in March, 1900, and town officials marked that occasion earlier this year by dressing up in period costumes and reenacting the first Town Council meeting, followed by a prayer vigil and a poetry reading. Officials sought to keep the solemn occasion separate from the party, and arranged that the birthday bash would be held at a time when the weather was likely to cooperate and people could celebrate with a more festive series of events. The parade ended at the Paul Amico Education and Athletic Complex where the party began. It is estimated that nearly 4,000 people participated, helping to consume steak sandwiches, hamburgers and other refreshments, while taking in a variety of entertainment from amusement rides and a petting zoo to performance by Secaucus' own theater company Community Arts Scholarship Theater. The TCB Band - led by local resident Mike Snuffer - provided music and the day was capped off with a special sky diving performance.
