The Ridgewood Fourth of July Celebration Committee is pleased to welcome Governor Chris Christie and his family to our 103rd parade. As an elected official who represents the citizens of the Village of Ridgewood, our community committee is happy to have the Christie family join us.
The Governor will be riding in the parade with his family. We have not had our governor join us for the parade since Christie Todd Whitman. The Christie family will be part of the first division of the parade along with our local dignitaries.
July 4th in Ridgewood is a very special day that our entire area looks forward to all year. This family oriented tradition began in 1910 when the local papers, the civic section of the Woman's Club and the Ridgewood Fire Department joined forces to create a “safe and sane” holiday with an emphasis on Patriotism. The theme for this year’s celebration is "Honoring our Declaration of Independence.”
