(201) Magazine names Ridgewood Celebration Best Fourth of July Parade for 11th year in a row!



At least a week before Independence Day, you’ll see the streets along the parade route in Ridgewood lined with beach chairs and ropes for avid spectators who are claiming their spot for the big day. For the 11th straight year, Ridgewood has been chosen for hosting the best Fourth of July parade in Bergen. Revelers come from miles around to see the floats, cheer the veterans and service groups, admire the fire engines and listen to the Ridgewood Marching Band play patriotic tunes and their football fight song, “Go Get ‘Em Ridgewood.” Go get ‘em indeed.
