Bruce Springsteen Day Inches Closer to Reality in The Garden State

The New Jersey State Legislature is advancing a resolution to declare September 23 as Bruce Springsteen Day.

Springsteen Day would take place each year in honor of the Freehold native’s birthday, according to a Democratic committee approved item.

In addition, Grover Cleveland–who was elected president in 1884 and 1892 after earlier serving as governor of New York—will get a full week in March, beginning on his birthday, March 18. Cleveland was born in Caldwell, NJ and is buried in Princeton.

Democratic State Sen. Vin Gopal–who represents Monmouth County– introduced the Springsteen measure last year, but it did not pass due to Covid-19.

“He’s a rich part of my district,” he said. “New Jersey should be proud of him.”

Of course, every Sunday is Springsteen Day with Tom Cunningham starting at 9 a.m. with “Springsteen on Sunday,” every week on 1071 The Boss. “Springsteen on Sunday” will host a live show at Bar Anticipation on March 28, hosted by Cunningam.
