The parade will begin at 11 a.m. The route will be along Laureate Way and N. Research Campus Drive, between City Hall and the North Carolina Research Campus. Indoor festivities will be in The Laureate Center at City Hall.

The free Open House will focus on the theme, “Every Second Counts.” You and your family can receive information on how to make sure you have working smoke alarms, plan home evacuations, and prevent fires. There will be emergency vehicles, music, entertainment, helicopters, inflatable games, and a Pit Road, which will consist of community partners with lots of great information, and more.

The Kannapolis Firefighters’ Assistance Foundation (KFAF) will have hamburgers, hotdogs, and drinks available for purchase. In addition, KFAF will host a silent auction and sell T-shirts. Profits will go to assist local firefighters in need.

If your organization’s mission is geared towards health, safety, education, injury prevention, community service, well-being, empowerment, etc. you are Pit Road ready and we invite you to join us!
