It was a beautiful night for a parade in Quarryville on Wednesday. Sun, blue sky and great temperatures made this years fair parade one of the largest that many of us remember. Truck 57 and Engine 575 were in the parade, with Engine 5 pulling the newly lettered trailer with the BecomeaFirefighter.org banner and lettering. Hopefully, some of the over 10,000 people (estimated) in attendance will take the initiative and help out their local community.
A special thanks to all of the Fire Police from all of the fire companies that helped. Without the dedication of these individuals, it would be very difficult, if not impossible, for the parade to go on. It would also mean a much longer wait in traffic to go around town or to leave after the parade.
Special thanks also to the Quarryville Borough Employees and the Quarryville Borough Police Department for assisting with barricades and keeping order. And last but not least, the Fair Parade Committee and all of the fair volunteers for making this a great family event!!
