Well the citizens of Trenton with their famous resounding resolve and tenacity saved the 28-year-old Trenton St. Patrick's Day Parade when it was in danger of being moved and after doing so, inspired a Trenton reporter to lead an effort to start a Trenton African American Pride Festival, thus saving and keeping one treasured Trenton tradition alive and starting a long-needed new tradition that is destined to occur on a yearly basis in this town forever and is already a treasured asset to our City!
We did it all within a one-year period of time. Kudos to my fellow Trentonians', if there is one thing I always have to remind people outside of this state its that Chris Christie isn't the only tough guy in NJ, we guys and gals, or lads and lassies in Trenton make Governor Christie look like a cute little puppy with no bite........in short, we Trentonians' kick-ass and although our murder and crime-rate may not reflect it....we stick together! The Irish Heritage Festival proceeds benefit (keep alive) the Trenton St. Patrick's Day Parade so please attend if you can. See you there!
