Commissioners attending besides the Mayor were Celin Valdivia and Mauaury Martinetti.
This afternoon’s flag raising was just the start of Friday’s festivities recognizing the diversity among Union City’s population. Tonight, a PRIDE celebration will be taking place at the corner of 15th Street and New York Avenue. It begins at 6 pm and will continue through 9 o’clock. There will be live music, popcorn, cotton candy, free hot dogs and water, as well as rides and activities for the entire community to enjoy.
