I'm Puerto Rican and Irish and this is the only parade I look forward to in Jersey City. It is excellent.

lol, it is the best parade of the year. It is held, I believe, in honor of Our Lady of Copacabana, the patroness of Bolivia.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virgen_de_Copacabana whose feast day is August 5th. I think the parade occurs on the closest Saturday to the actual day. It is an amazing parade. It used to be done out of St. Boniface Church (now condos). I guess its been moved to St.Mary's on Second Street.

It's held exclusively at the hottest hour of the hottest day of the year. Every year.

The guy in the abominable snowman costume really loves to sweat.

I would hope so. But, as long as we don't get throngs of drunks and tons of litter afterwards, I will be happy enough.

Link doesn't work for me.

Does it run down Jersey then left on Newark, right on grove like past years?


I think the poster meant http://bolivianj.org/ (fyui, it's in spanish)

If my memory serves me, there were some food stalls and some tables set up with handcrafted items from Bolivia for sale. I have been a fan of this parade since my family and I happened upon it while walking back from grabbing a cup of coffee one Saturday about four years ago. It is truly spectacular, the music, the costumes, everything. It's also wonderful for children to see a celebration of Bolivian culture. Our little one was dancing the entire time. I highly recommend this event!

Yep, I have to agree … the Bolivian parade is the best! And, this year I'm back on Jersey Avenue so I'll have prime viewing. Thanks for the heads-up.

It's really fun to see the crazy masks and costumes the participants wear. Bring some earplugs 'cause the floats all have huge speakers and they like to crank it up!!
