Hoboken hosts ‘Spaghetti Dinner Block Party’ Thursday

HOBOKEN AND BEYOND — The city’s 6th Annual Spaghetti Dinner Block Party will take place Thursday, Sept. 2 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the walkway along Sinatra Drive between First and Second streets. Tickets are $20 each for adults, less for children, and people can buy a table. It includes four kinds of pasta, meatballs, sausage, salad, bread and dessert.
Wine, beer, water, soda, will also be available at additional cost and sold to raise funds for the Hoboken Ambulance Corp.
The Spaghetti Dinner Block Party was an event that started in 2005 to celebrate Hoboken’s 150th Anniversary. The idea was to recreate a community event that took place in 1955 for the City’s 100th Anniversary – a Spaghetti Dinner Block Party on Washington Street, except now it is held along the waterfront.
Tables are set up along the walkway on Frank Sinatra Drive so that everyone can enjoy the beautiful view of the Manhattan skyline. People bring their families and businesses entertain their employees. It is one big outdoor community dinner party.
Tickets can be purchased at City Hall, the Cultural Affairs Office 94 Washington Street. Call 201-420-2207.
Checks should be made out to the City of Hoboken and can be mailed to:
The Hoboken Division of Cultural Affairs, 94 Washington St., Hoboken, NJ 07030. Include a piece of paper with your name, address, phone number, and how many tickets you would like to purchase. For more information, call 201-420-2207, www.hobokennj.org.
