Calling all spaghetti lovers! Get ready for the annual Spaghetti Block Party, where people gather by the Hoboken waterfront for some non-stop vacuum-suctioning of these delectable classic Italian noodles.

In 2005, this event was brought back in celebration for the 150 years of Hoboken and since then, has continued ever since each summer. It’s pretty much a big outdoor community fiesta with lots of pasta! You must buy tickets to come to this event and don’t worry, it’s not too late. No man or woman is lonely eating spaghetti – it requires so much attention. So make sure you go and show spaghetti some lovin’!
