Don’t rain on our parade: Redwings football team postpones parade due to forecast

HOBOKEN – Due to a rainy forecast, the Hoboken High School Redwings Football team has rescheduled their parade, originally planned for Wednesday, Dec. 23, to Wednesday, January 13 at 3 p.m.
The team won their 10th NJSIAA State Championship victory on Dec. 5 after beating out the undefeated Brearley Bears of Kenilworth, 34-12, at Kean University. The team, led by Coach Lou Taglieri and his staff, will be honored at the parade.
“Congratulations to Coach Taglieri and the entire Redwings team on their tenth State Championship!” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer in a statement earlier this month. “We’re so proud of them and we invite the entire community to come out and celebrate their tremendous achievement.”
The parade will still start at the Elks at 10th and Washington Streets at 1 p.m. and conclude at City Hall, 94 Washington St. Read all about the game in last week’s Hoboken Reporter or online at
