Stone Harbor presents the Al Cunard Baby Parade

By On Deck Staff

The babies will have their day as the Borough of Stone Harbor, New Jersey, presents the Al Cunard Baby Parade, line up starting at 5:45 pm, with the parade beginning at 6:30 pm on Monday, July 21, 2008. The parade will take place on 96th Street.
“This is one of our most popular events every year and is truly a sight to behold,” said event organizer Amy Giulian. “This year, we expect more than 75 infants and children to participate in strollers, carriages, wagons, bikes and eye-catching floats.”
Registration for the Baby Parade is free, and open to all children, ages birth to 12 years old.
Stone Harbor Mayor Suzanne Walters and a panel of judges will award prizes in the categories of Cutest Boy, Cutest Girl, Best Riding, Best Float, and Best Walking Entrant. There will also be special Judges’ and Mayor’s Awards for unique categories.
“This is an exciting way for proud moms and dads to meet new friends and neighbors with children of a similar age,” Giulian continued. “Best of all, every child wins, as each registered family receives a free participation trophy.” Giulian went on to say that additional participation trophies may be purchased for just $5 each.
The Baby Parade is named in honor of the late Alfred Cunard, patriarch of the legendary Cunard Family of Clowns, who passed way at the age of 70 on May 19, 2007. For 45 years, Cunard donned his clown make-up to entertain children at parades, festivals, parties, schools and hospitals. His zest for life and laughs inspired two generations of Cunards to follow him into the world of clowning.
Interested families can register for the Baby Parade July 14 through 21 at the Chamber of Commerce office located at 212 96th Street in Stone Harbor. For more information call 609-368-6101.
