Hoboken Celebrates Geri Fallo’s Final Spaghetti Block Party Under Moonlit Sky

As first reported by Patch, HOBOKEN, NJ – A significant gathering was witnessed at Hoboken’s waterfront this past Thursday evening as hundreds of residents convened for the traditional Spaghetti Block Party Dinner. The moonlit night added a touch of magic to the event, which has become a cherished tradition in the community.

However, this year’s gathering held a deeper significance. Mayor Ravi Bhalla took the opportunity to announce that this would be the last Spaghetti Block Party organized under the guidance of Geri Fallo, the city’s esteemed director of cultural affairs. Fallo, who is set to retire this year, has been a pivotal figure in promoting arts and culture in Hoboken since the early 1990s.

The Spaghetti Block Party Dinner has its roots dating back to 2005 when it was launched to commemorate Hoboken’s 150th Anniversary. The inspiration for this event was drawn from a similar celebration held in 1955, marking the city’s centennial. Hosted at the scenic south waterfront, attendees were treated to an array of culinary delights, ranging from various pasta dishes to salads, sausages, bread, and delectable pastries.

As the community came together to celebrate, reminisce, and look forward to new beginnings, the event served as a testament to the city’s rich history, culture, and the indomitable spirit of its residents.
