Special to The Sun
Burlington County Clerk Joanne Schwartz officiates the wedding of Eileen Perez and Etronila Polanco during Bordentown Pride and Community Day last year.

The Bordentown Pride and Community Day is returning next month, and Burlington County Clerk Joanne Schwartz is inviting couples to marry that day as part of the celebration of equality and LGBTQ+ rights.

Schwartz will officiate weddings on Saturday, June 29, during the event. This year marks the fourth year the historic city has hosted the event and the second that Schwartz has participated by officiating weddings. She also plans to join in the event’s march.

Weddings will be held that day in Bordentown’s Old City Hall, located at 11 Crosswicks Street.

A panel from the National AIDS Quilt will also be displayed in the building as part of the festivities. The event will also have a community fun area with face painting, arts and crafts, pet fashion contest, henna tattoo art, music and more.

Couples interested in being wed that day should contact the Burlington County Clerk’s Office at (609) 265-5233 to book a time on June 29. There is no fee for the service, but couples must obtain a marriage license from the municipality where they reside or from Bordentown City if the couple live outside New Jersey.
