The Kannapolis Fire Department will host a Fire Truck Parade on Friday, October 14th, 2022.
The parade will begin at 5:45 p.m. and proceed along Laureate Way and N. Research Campus Drive, between City Hall and the North Carolina Research Campus.
Immediately, following the fire truck parade join us for the Children’s Fire Costume Contest in front of City Hall. Kids aged 12 and under are encouraged to dress in a fire related costume. Prizes will be awarded for the Most Original, Most Similar to Kannapolis Fire Department, and Chief’s Choice Award. Registration is not required.
The Fire Prevention Festival, which was originally scheduled to follow the parade, will not be taking place on the rescheduled date.
That same day Kannapolis firefighters are sponsoring a food drive to benefit the Cooperative Christian Ministry Food Pantry. Drop off your non-perishable food items, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., on Friday, October 14th, 2022, at Kannapolis City Hall, 401 Laureate Way. Meet Kannapolis firefighters as they accept your donations and “stuff the fire truck”.
