Seaside Heights will be among the locations nationwide where a Make American Great Again march, in support of President Donald Trump, will be held March 25.
The MAGA March movement, as it is called, is organizing pro-Trump marches in all 50 states that day. The Seaside Heights borough council formally granted permission for the march to take place at its meeting Wednesday.
“We love our country and owe the men and women who put their lives on the line to ensure our freedom and those who keep us safe and protected,” organizers of the local march said on a Facebook event page. “We are marching for our President, Vice President, military and first responders.”
The march will take place Saturday, March 25 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on the boardwalk. An exact starting point has yet to be announced.
“We are the silent majority and we are ready for real change,” the national MAGA March website states. “We are not protesting anything about America; we are only showing our support for it and the change that is happening.”
The Seaside Heights march appears to be the only one of its kind in New Jersey. Organizers of the national event said they had set a goal of at least one march in each state.
