Cedar Springs first ever firefighters parade was held last Friday evening, September 23, in an effort to honor local firefighters, police and rescue personnel. It was part of this year’s Red Flannel Festival.
The fire trucks did one pass with sirens and lights going, and the second pass was a silent one in remembrance of those that have lost their lives on duty.
“We were in the parade, and I think that it was amazing! It truly shows how the people of the community feel about not only the great local firefighters, but the surrounding area firefighters, too,” said Vicki Wysocki, on the Post Facebook page. “Everyone that came made us feel truly appreciated.”
The parade started after the varsity football game ended, but it still may have been too soon for some people attending the game. “We were at the game and we wanted to take the kids to the parade, but they could have waited until most of the spectators left so we could enjoy it,” wrote Heather Male, on our Facebook page. “We missed it waiting in the parking lot.”
If you have thoughts on the firefighter’s parade, let the Red Flannel Festival know if you’d like to see it again next year by visiting their Facebook page.
