Share Article

Centennial party kicks off with parade through the borough, featuring floats, bands, Miss New jersey and much more.

It will be a ‘blast’ for all who attend the 100th anniversary celebration of Woodland Park. The event will be taking place from 1-10 p.m., Saturday, May 17 and will consist of a three-hour parade, a picnic, games, music, contests and a spectacular fireworks display to conclude the historic day.

Fairway Market, which opened in the borough on US 46 West in 2012, will supply delicious sandwiches, pulled chicken, hot dogs, hamburgers, brownies, cookies, fruit and beverages for the picnic at Memorial Field, behind Memorial Middle School.

“We are very excited to host this once in a lifetime celebration of our community,” said Keith Kazmark, mayor of Woodland Park. “The 100th Anniversary parade and picnic will fully show the pride in our borough and none of this would have been possible without the help and support of our lead sponsor, Fairway Market.”

“Fairway has been absolutely wonderful to Woodland Park in every way,” said Gary Holloway, co-chair of the event and a borough councilman. “This is a business that came to the borough and, from the get-go, has been totally committed to supporting the community in many ways and in particular to our 100th Anniversary celebration.”

“We are delighted to be a part of Woodland Park’s 100th Anniversary celebration,” said Bill Sanford, interim CEO of Fairway Market. “Since we opened Fairway Market two years ago, we have been committed to being not just a good business, but also a good neighbor. So we look forward to making the picnic a very special family day.”

The borough, known as West Paterson until 2009 when the new name - Woodland Park- became official, was formed in May 1914. A Centennial Committee has been working on the parade and picnic for more than a year, and several thousand people are expected to attend.

The centennial celebration will be ongoing throughout the year with trolley rides around the borough on Sunday, September 21 and The Centennial Gala at the Westmont Country Club on Sunday, November 9. For more information on the parade and picnic, visit http://www.wp100years.com.
