The parade has always been held on Sundays, and beginning this year will start a new tradition of being held on Saturday evening.
“What a fun way to kick off the holiday season! It is great to see so many local businesses, organizations and county residents participating in this year’s Hunterdon Holiday Parade,” Rich said.
The parade featured the Hunterdon Central Regional High School Marching Red Devils, St. Ann’s Bagpipes, various first-responders organizations including police, fire departments and rescue squads, along with numerous businesses and local organizations. The pre-parade entertainment was provided by performers from LBC Talent and Rogers Dance Academy.
“On behalf of the entire Commissioner Board, I would like to thank Chris Phelan and the Hunterdon County Chamber of Commerce for all their hard work in planning and organizing this parade and bringing some early holiday joy to Flemington,” Kuhl said.
Retiring Hunterdon County Surrogate, Susan Hoffman, served as the parade’s grand marshal. Ms. Hoffman has served eight full terms in the elected position and is the state’s longest-serving county surrogate.
