Everyone loves a parade and everyone loves fire trucks – so you will love our Fire Truck Parade. To celebrate the 100th birthday of the Kannapolis Fire Department we are having a parade at 10 a.m. on October 1. 


The parade will begin at the intersection of Laureate Way and Biotechnology Lane and continue down Laureate Way to N. Research Campus Drive.

After the parade we will keep celebrating with an Open House at Kannapolis City Hall, 401 Laureate Way. There will be a Quiet Time Touch-A-Truck with no lights and sirens, concessions, fun children’s activities, music and a special birthday ceremony at 12 noon.

You can vote on your favorite truck from the parade and awards will be presented to the winners at 2:30 p.m.

If you are a fire department or an individual with a fire truck who would like to participate in the parade contact Kirk Beard at 704-920-4272/kbeard@kannapolisnc.gov.
