The Kannapolis Fire Department will once again host a Fire Truck Parade as part of their Fire Safety Festival, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., Saturday, September 29. The parade will begin at 11 a.m. The route will be along Laureate Way and N. Research Campus Drive, between City Hall and the North Carolina Research Campus. Indoor festivities will be in The Laureate Center at City Hall.
This free community event focuses on working smoke alarms, home escape planning and fire prevention. In addition to valuable safety information, there will be music, entertainment, emergency vehicles, helicopters, “Community Row,” which is our community partners’ vendor area, kids’ firefighter challenge course, inflatable games and more.
This year we will also host a blood drive and offer car safety seat checks as part of the event. Due to the hurricane there is a need for blood donations in the Carolinas. Register to give blood this Saturday at our event - https://www.donorscbcc.us/do…/schedules/drive_schedule/31757
