Hungry? 200-foot 'monster' hoagie served up for South Jersey homecoming

MOUNT HOLLY TWP. — Staff at Downtown Pizza and Grill hope you come hungry to Saturday’s homecoming parade.

For the second year, they’re preparing a 200-foot hoagie that will be stretched across multiple tables at the Rancocas Valley Regional High School 2016 Homecoming Parade. 

The restaurant at 35 High St. is on the parade route. Staff will start putting together the “monster” hoagie outside when the parade begins at 10 a.m.

When it’s done, they’ll hand out pieces to parade attendees. It’s free, according to a press release, but any donations will go toward supporting the Mount Holly Police Department’s Superiors and Patrolman Associations.

The associations support community causes like youth sports, community activities and scholarships, according to the press release.

Last year, the proceeds helped support the building of a memorial to honor Mount Holly police officers hurt and killed by a gunman in 1975. Donald Aleshire and William Wurst were killed and John Holmes was paralyzed.
