It’s been a local tradition since 1886: the annual Biloxi Fireman’s Day Parade.
This tradition is making its way back to the Gulf Coast in just a few short weeks. This year, the parade’s lineup has been changed.
It will now begin in front of Bradford O’Keefe Funeral home located at 675 Howard Avenue and it will continue on to the Fire Museum located at 1046 Howard Avenue.
After the parade ends, there will be a reception held at the fire museum. Deputy Chief in Training Nicholaus Geiser said, “Back in the old days, it was always a show and it was a great support from the community and that is what we are hoping to get back to. With so much going on in our lives, it is always nice to see a community come together for something fun. Everyone always loves firemen and firefighters. Everyone can see the old trucks and we put new trucks in it and it kind of gives you a nostalgic feeling.”
The parade is on Saturday, September 14th and will begin at 10 a.m. All are encouraged to attend and come out to support our local heroes.
