Honoring all the amazing moms this Mother’s Day in West New York & Union City


It was a time to honor the women who do it all in West New York and Union City Saturday afternoon, just in time for the big day on Sunday.

Mother’s Day was on everyone’s mind since they are the women who brought us life.

From food to entertainment (including live music) and picture taking with the moms… smiles were plentiful.

The meaning of the holiday is very significant because fundamentally mothers are the base of who we are.

The love of a mother is unconditional and when you have a child it becomes your all.
