2017 Columbus Day – Parade Information

Weather Concerns:
In the event of inclement weather on Sunday which would make our participation in the Morris County Parade a hardship for our honorees (parade convertible vehicles).  We will inform our membership via Facebook & Twitter..


In addition to the Morris County & the NYC Columbus Day Parade, (see below) We are also participating in the Jersey City Columbus Day Parade.   
The honorees at this year's JC Parade are both IAPSNJ Members.
