It’s nearly Halloween in Hoboken—which means the city’s celebrated Ragamuffin Parade is coming to Washington Street!!!
The Ragamuffin Parade and Costume Contest will be held Wednesday afternoon on Washington Street, featuring local live music, floats, lots of great costumes and so much more.
Interested participants should meet on Washington between 13th Street and 14th Street. Line up begins at 3:15pm. , with the Parade starting at 3:45.
A costume contest will begin around 4:15 p.m., after the parade at the Little League Field, located at 5th Street and River Terrace.
Be advised, Washington Street will be closed and NJ Transit buses will follow a detour during the parade.
Trick-or-treating will take place afterwards, generally through 9:00 p.m. Please be mindful of revelers in costumes as you make your way through the City. According to the National Safety Council, children are more than twice as likely to be hit by a car and killed on Halloween than on any other day of the year. In 2017, October ranked No. 2 in motor vehicle deaths by month, with 3,700.
Please, PLEASE be safe… and enjoy the amazing Hoboken Halloween:
