The annual Dane County Fire Chiefs Association Fire Truck Parade will take place Sunday, Oct. 5.
This popular event is held each year to mark the beginning of Fire Prevention Week in Dane County. The parade includes more than 30 fire trucks from many of the fire departments serving communities in Dane County.
The parade begins at 1 p.m. at the end of State St. near the Library Mall. The trucks, adorned with plenty of chrome and flashing red lights, will travel up State St. to the Capitol Square.
Once at the square, the fire trucks will be on display until 3 p.m. for children of all ages to see up close. Firefighters will be available to answer questions about fire safety. This year, the fire trucks on the square will be joined by the newly-rebuilt Fire Safety House, which has been visiting area schools as part of Fire Prevention Month activities.
