Things looked a little gloomy early in the morning as rain fell while the judges were going over the visiting fire apparatus and rescue squad rigs trying to decide who will win a trophy. But mother nature was very cooperative, the rain stopped which provided for some nice cool weather for the rest of the day.
The day’s events started off at 12:30 PM with a parade that lasted over an hour and a half. The mile and a quarter parade route started on Halstead Street, winding throughout town onto Main Street, ending at Hunts Mill Park on Haver Farm Road. The park is where the festivities continued with food, drinks, and music played by a DJ. The park activities culminated with the awarding of trophies for the fire apparatus, rescue squad vehicles, and marching units that took part in the parade.
