Fire department to celebrate Fourth with parade in New Milford
With no fireworks set for Saturday, Water Witch Hose Company plans to celebrate Independence Day with a parade through parts of New Milford.
Beginning at 7 p.m., the fire department will parade from the firehouse, around the green, and then down Route 7. It will then make a special trip into the Lone Oak and Perry Drive communities, which the department said had some of the best signs during its other parades throughout quarantine.
“So in appreciation for the support we would like to light up the Fourth the only way we can,” the department wrote on Facebook.
Members of the fire department will also head from the firehouse to town hall at 2 p.m. on Saturday where they will unveil their new uniforms. Residents are invited to attend but asked to maintain the appropriate social distance and continue to follow other coronavirus protocols.
