This will be the 71st time (Since 1952) the Rutherford Chamber of Commerce Holiday Parade will kickoff the Rutherford holiday season. Last year was a great success and we plan on this year being even better. The Parade will begin with a kickoff celebration on Rutherford’s West-End, near Blue Foundry Bank on Union Ave. The parade will travel up Union, right on Chestnut, left on Ames, and right on Park Ave. Ending at the Rutherford Public Library and Holiday Tree.
