Vineland, New Jersey hosting ‘Parade For Pop’ to celebrate Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco
Kansas City Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco already has “Isiah Pacheco Day” in his hometown of Vineland, New Jersey, but now he’s getting a parade to honor his latest achievement.
Vineland Mayor Anthony Fanucci announced last week that the town would celebrate the Super Bowl LVII champion with “The Parade for Pop” on Sunday, April 23 beginning at 11:00 a.m. ET. It’ll feature both a parade and rally, which likely be similar to the parade and rally they had back when they gave him the key to the city and retired his jersey at Vineland South High School back in June.
Speaking to The W Show’s Steve Walls at the 101 Awards this past weekend, Pacheco explained what this honor from his hometown means to him.
“I can only imagine how — I had a parade when I got the key to the city,” Pacheco said. “So, this one’s going to be a little bit different. Last year, one of our Vineland players from Vineland (South) High School, my ex-teammate (Rams OL Jamil Demby), won the Super Bowl with the LA Rams last year. So back-to-back in the City of Vineland, it’s something special to the community. It’s moments we can’t get like this for us to represent New Jersey and your community and Cumberland county, I’ll do whatever I’ve got to do to put that respect on the face of the community.”
That community is eager to celebrate its latest Super Bowl champion.
“So many residents of Cumberland County are eager to demonstrate their admiration for Isiah’s accomplishments,” Mayor Fanucci said, via WPG Talk Radio. “This community rally will be an opportunity for all of us to offer our congratulations to our hometown hero upon achieving his dreams of becoming a World Champion, and for being such a wonderful ambassador for the City of Vineland.”
