74th Remington fireman’s parade draws a crowd
Remington Volunteer Fire and Rescue President Steve Wright drives the ladder truck.
Storm clouds bypassed Remington Friday evening in time for the annual fireman’s parade, the last of its kind in Fauquier County.
Organized by the Remington Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department, the parade drew about 90 participants from Spotsylvania, Culpeper, Orange, Fauquier and surrounding counties.
Citizens lined the sidewalks of Main Street waving and cheering at fire engines, police cars, military vehicles, church groups, Boy Scouts and pageant queens.
The parade continued onto Church Street, past the judges’ table, while citizens watched from their front porches.
