Bayonne Memorial Day Parade to Return in 2022

Mayor Jimmy Davis announced that the City of Bayonne, in conjunction with the Bayonne Memorial Day Parade Committee, have organized the return of the Bayonne Memorial Day Parade, on Monday, May 30, 2022.   The parade has not taken place since 2019, due to concerns about the Coronavirus in 2020 and 2021. 

Mayor Davis explained, “The parade has been a Bayonne tradition since 1918. We call upon the patriotic residents of Bayonne to turn out for the parade’s return on Monday, May 30.  We look forward to seeing people out on Broadway again for this parade.”

Pete Amadeo, Supervisor of the Bayonne Recreation Division, has been working on the parade with the veterans on the Bayonne Memorial Day Parade Committee.  Barry Jones, an Army veteran, chairs the Memorial Day Parade Committee.  Michael Wilson, a Navy veteran, will be the Grand Marshal of the 2022 parade. 

The parade will assemble at 9:00 a.m. on East 5th Street between Broadway and Isabella Avenue, and will commence at 10:00 a.m. There will be a brief ceremony at the start of the parade to honor our deceased veterans and to place a wreath at the World War I Memorial. The parade will proceed north along Broadway and will then pass a reviewing stand setup in front of American Legion Post 19 and will end at 32nd Street and Broadway.
