This year, the New Brunswick Fire Department will mark 250 years of serving the people of New Brunswick.
To celebrate this occasion, the fire department has a week of activities planned, including a banquet, a golf outing and a parade through New Brunswick’s streets, culminating in a community celebration at Memorial Stadium.
The parade is scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 11, and will take place on Livingston Avenue between Sandford Street and New Brunswick Middle School. The celebration at Memorial Stadium is scheduled to begin immediately after, from 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The department has put a call out to fire companies from surrounding areas that would like to participate in the parade. All interested parties are asked to register by Sept. 19.
