Past Cape May Baby Parade Participant

Cape May, NJ -  Another Cape May cherished tradition, the Baby Parade, kicks off at 11AM on Friday, August 1.  Look for the cute as a button babies, toddlers and kids, shadowed by their protective Moms, as they head down Beach Avenue by foot or in fancy carriages.

The parade starts at Beach Avenue and Congress Street  (right by Congress Hall.) The marchers will all walk or be pushed down to Cape May Convention Hall.

And yes there will be trophies. Awards will be given for: Pretty Baby, Decorated Baby Carriage, Children Walking in Fancy Dress, Children Walking in Comic Dress, and Decorated on Wheels. In addition, awards will be handed out for the bests float – whether pulled by Mom or motorized – and the best entry overall.

This is the 82nd year that Cape May has hosted the Baby Parade. If it rains, look for the little ones to do their marching on Saturday August 2 at the same time.
