Coordinated by members of the Winchester and Frederick County firefighters for the 88th year, the Firefighters’ Parade will step off at 5:30 p.m. Friday, May 5th.

Come downtown to the Midway for carnival food, games and entertainment and then head over to the parade route to see the Antique Firetruck's start with the pre-parade, some trucks date back to the early 1920's!   Our local Fire Companies are in the First Division to show off their equipment.  There are celebrities, Miss Honorary Fire Company winners, bands and special units.   There are 4 Divisions with Fire and Rescue Equipment from all over the Mid Atlantic Region. The final division is the Siren Division where the Fire Companies sound their horns.  This is a wonderful community event, where friends and families gather together to Thank our Fire and Rescue teams. 

The first Torchlight and Mummers’ Parade in 1929 stepped off at 8 p.m. with each of the Winchester fire departments participating. Each firefighter carried a flaming torch. No parade was held from 1942 to 1945 during the war and 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID 19 Pandemic. From this humble beginning, it is now the largest and one of the oldest annual firefighters’ parades in the world.  Watch the entire broadcast of the Firefighter's Parade, and additional footage on our Videos page! 

The Grand Feature Parade will be on Saturday, May 6 at 1:30 (end time about 4:30)  Tickets are $10, except for in the Queen’s Garden, they are $20.
