Bayonne Hispanic Association Parade on Sept. 27 at 1 p.m.

BAYONNE – Spanish cultures of every stripe will be celebrated on Sunday, Sept. 27 as representatives from the city’s Latino population will march, dance, and sing during the Bayonne Hispanic Association parade, kicking off at 1 p.m.
The annual tradition begins at the intersection of Fifth Street and Broadway and proceeds north one mile up the avenue before marchers turn left at 23rd street and walk west for a block and a half to Assumption Church, between Kennedy Boulevard and Avenue C, where an ethnic festival will be held.
Though the parade celebrates the customs, traditions, and diversity of the city’s 21 Spanish groups, all Bayonne residents are invited to attend the parade and party.
During the parade, spectators can expect to see floats, more than 40 groups, and up to 700 marchers, including those representing social, religious, and educational organizations.
The after-party will feature food, music, entertainment, and activities for children, including face painting.
