On Saturday, July 1st, the 91st Annual Baby Parade started on Elliot Place at Rutherford High School and made its way to Lincoln Park. Participants looped around the park twice so that the panel of judges could take a close look at all of the costumes and floats. As in years past, families were very creative and there were costumes ranging from astronauts to apple pie bakers alongside a giant apple pie to an eagle in a nest. Many generations of families have participated in this parade over the last ninety-one years, which makes this Rutherford tradition a particularly special one.

Councilman Ray Guzman and Councilwoman Maria Begg-Roberson were the Masters of Ceremony. Rutherford Recreation Director, Pat Bonner and Rutherford Recreation Staff Members, Maureen Bigley and Janice Guzman, coordinators of the event, were excited to help keep the parade running smoothly. Mayor Frank Nunziato thanked the Rutherford Recreation Department, all of the participants, the judges, and the Rutherford Police Department.
