New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will be leading the Ridgewood Fourth of July Parade, sources told Patch Saturday.
According to two village officials, the Republican governor will be making a brief speech during the flag raising portion of the ceremony in the morning.
Christie and his family will be riding in the first division of the parade along with Ridgewood officials, the Fourth of July Committee said Monday. He's the first governor to appear in the 103rd annual parade since Christie Todd Whitman.
A Christie spokesman did not immediately return a request for comment.
