Friday June 7, at 7:30 p.m. the Firemens parade will begin. Stake out a good spot along Colonial Ave or Washington Ave to get a good seat. The fire department will sound the fire station siren approximately 5 minutes before the parade begins. The route begins on Colonial Ave at the intersection of Jackson Street heading towards the river. The parade will turn right at Washington and proceed to Boundary Street and circle back to the Town Hill.
After the parade, stick around for music, beauty pageants and other activities on Town Hill before the awards are presented. Be sure to bring ear plugs for the parade and don’t miss all the visiting fire companies leaving after the awards are given.
This parade WILL be loud. It is often heard across the river in Maryland!
