My pleasure of sharing the pictures with you all. I just hope the photo album gets its way, somehow, to the Bolivian Day parade organizers and participants, so that they also get to keep a good souvenir from their great participation in this annual event.

Chama, sincere thanks for sharing these photos! Unfortunately we could not attend this year, but my family and I enjoyed the fantastic shots that you posted. We are already looking forward to next year's parade!
This parade is truly a gem in JC, how I wish our city's cultural affairs dept would do a better job of promoting it.

Wow - that is a wonderful album - thank you for sharing. It's so nice to see young people carrying on the traditions of their family's home countries. I wish I knew the story behind some of the costumes!

Feel free to share/forward this link to the Parade organizers, as I don't have their contact information.

Bolivian Parade & Festival

August 5 @ 12:00 pm - 7:00 pm

One of the liveliest and most colorful events in Jersey City, the much-anticipated Bolivian Parade & Festival is taking place

Saturday, August 5, 2017
PARADE: 12-2 PM
FESTIVAL: 12-7 PM

Watch amazing, eye-popping costumes make their way from Brunswick Street over to Christopher Columbus to City Hall Plaza. At the finish, there will be tons of food, drink and even more dancing!


The calendar was probably never updated until very recently because the parade permit was not issued until Thursday (08/03) which seems ridiculously late, but what do I know?

I bet you're right, it was Columbus. I just recall being surprised by it after coming up from the PATH which is why I said Newark. Good correction.

Agreed. Such things should be better advertised. This one is simply on the radar of the public more than other events due to the fact that it's actually really good. Word of mouth should not be the only source of info.


Also agree on the lack of publicity. This is about the only one worth spectating, IMO. And IIRC, last year year they went down Jersey then East on Columbus (not Newark) or maybe it was East on Newark to Barrow then south to Columbus. Not through the pedestrian plaza...

Parade is tomorrow!
Route used to be - I THINK - south from Hamilton Park, east on Newark, south on Grove. Is this correct/still true? Don't remember if the ped plaza on newark changed that.

I always catch this festival on my way back from the Nyc Summer Streets car free fest as I surface from the GS PATH station escalator.

Disappointed that this isn't better advertised. I would have actually planned my weekend around this - as many people seem to agree it's the only worthwhile parade in JC. But, alas, I only found out about it after the fact.
