Tuesday, July 16th

At 8am members of The Mount Carmel Society convene at Little Flower Church on Plainfield Avenue dressed in their “marching attire” and sashes designating their membership. The Virgin Mary statue is adorned with beautiful flowers and white ribbons as she’s carefully prepared to travel her journey through town. The travel route is followed each year with designated stops at the homes of previous members. This is done to respect the family, remember loved ones and to honor the tradition.

A band providing Italian – American music leads the traditional route through designated areas. To honor the Blessed Mother, many will pin money on the white ribbons she adorns. In keeping with tradition, each donor is provided with a Mount Carmel scapular.

All are welcome to join the procession route at any time!

Evening entertainment: 1950s Band Tuesday at Eight, Jay Allan The Legend of Elvis followed by Big Fireworks at 10pm.

Fireworks are provided by the world famous Garden State Fireworks, Santore Bros.
