Montclair, NJ – Back in November, after days of waiting for final election results, Montclair celebrated the Biden-Harris win with an impromptu party on Church Street and Bloomfield Avenue, featuring cheering and horn honking that lasted for several hours.
Today, on Inauguration Day, a group of Montclair residents, organized by Bradley Grove Hyson, plan to celebrate again, starting at 4:30 p.m. on Church Street. Hyson shared this Facebook event, and writes:
If you were inspired by the jubilation & natural expressions of joy that happened in downtown Montclair on the Saturday the election was finally called, we invite you to GATHER SAFELY to celebrate this beginning of a new chapter for our nation.

We invite you to dress for celebration as you feel called (COSTUMES WELCOME), and bring your own signs & appropriate merry making items, along with your dancing shoes as we boogie down under the January skies.
