Welcome to Farmingdale

Known as "Today's Town...with Yesterday's Touch", Farmingdale, and its Main Street, dates back to an Indian path toward the Manasquan River. The town of Farmingdale started out with two stores, two taverns, and 10-12 dwellings.

2020 Memorial Day Parade

47th Annual
Farmingdale Memorial Day Parade!

Monday May 25th, come out and be a part of your community. The parade kicks off with the annual Lutz Park Memorial ceremony hosted by the Howell VFW Post 9691 with members from the Ladies Auxiliary and the American Legion to start at 11:30, followed by the parade kick off at 1:00. Join us down on Main St., grab a chair and your favorite beverage in a red solo cup,  bring your friends and family and hang with the rest of us!

Annually with over 100+ marching units, including the famous Howell High School marching unit & band, and many many other musical acts, including the CBA and Police Pipe and Drum units, Rag Time and the School of Rock rock bands as well as local dance troops, it's really a festive time.
The State Police mounted unit and the Howell Color Guard unit lead off the parade followed up by all of the local Police, Fire, OEM and First Aid units showing off their rigs. Many local Scouting units, Shriner Clowns on their mini bikes and go carts, and church organization and local business floats help celebrate the day. Many of our state, county and local officials are in attendance either marching or riding in cool historic cars and trucks. Closed out by Cowboy Larry and his Horse team. I know I have missed many of the other fantastic marching units, because there is just too many to list, but we thank them all for attending and making this such a great event. This event is made possible because of generous donations by our local businesses and borough professionals, there is never a cost to the taxpayer for the event.
PLEASE tell all of your family coming in to either participate or just partake, the Parade Route is CLOSED TO ALL TRAFFIC from 12:00 noon until 2:00 or until the parade has fully completed it's way back to Academy Street and Southard Avenue. State Police will be ticketing any vehicles on the parade route not in the parade during those times!
     It's a great time to remember and thank those who served for all of us and celebrate the freedoms they have afforded us. Please continue to thank those who are still serving who continue to afford the same for all Americans today!
We hope to see you all there!
