Coordinated by members of the Winchester and Frederick County Firefighters, the Firefighters’ Parade will step off at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, May 2nd in Old Town Winchester. The parade includes fire engines, bands, antique vehicles, and much more! This year’s Firefighters’ Marshal is J.R. Martinez.
The first Torchlight and Mummer’s Parade in 1929 stepped off at 8 p.m. with each of the Winchester Fire Departments participating. Each Firefighter carried a flaming torch. From its humble beginning it is now the largest and one of the oldest annual Firefighters’ Parades in the world.
