The Kannapolis Fire Department will once again host a Fire Truck Parade as part of their Fire Safety Festival, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., Saturday, September 29. 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.

We invite fire departments to join us in the parade. If you are an individual who owns a fire truck we also invite you to participate in the parade.

This free community event focuses on working smoke alarms, home escape planning and fire prevention. In addition to valuable safety information, there will be music, entertainment, emergency vehicles, helicopters, “Community Row,” which is our community partners’ vendor area, kids’ firefighter challenge course, inflatable games and more.

If your organization’s mission is geared towards health, safety, education, injury prevention, community service, well-being, etc. - we invite you to join us as well.
