Have a picnic on Newport Green! Grab a picnic blanket and some snacks, and sit out and enjoy the sun! Newport Green also frequently has fun events like food trucks on the weekend. Follow us on Instagram @newportnjapts to be kept up to date on all of our fun events!
If you’re craving the ocean to ring in the summer, look no further than Jersey Shore beaches. Take the trip down to the shore to find beautiful beaches, fun boardwalks, and delicious food. There is something for everyone to enjoy at the shore!
The Bayonne Memorial Day Parade is back for the first time in two years! The parade will assemble at 9:00 a.m. on East 5th Street between Broadway and Isabella Avenue and will commence at 10:00 a.m. There will be a brief ceremony at the start of the parade to honor our deceased veterans and to place a wreath at the World War I Memorial. The parade will proceed north along Broadway and will then pass a reviewing stand set up in front of American Legion Post 19 and will end at 32nd Street and Broadway. This parade has been a tradition since 1918.
