    Check on www.vbfd.com. Martin Grube is a firefighter here and is our historian. He can provide you with info as he is organizing a lot of this event. His contact info should be on the site.

    West Point has a great night parade just for fire apparatus to kick off their "Crab Carnival". Last year there were over 80 pieces from all over including Maryland. Afterwards they have food and a get together at the firehouse with a unique presentation for awards: a powerpoint of the parade with a picture of each winner. There is a street dance and stuff for the kids afterwards also. In addition there is a 5 year trophy for best department which is about 5 ft tall and goes to a department each year to hold and defend. The department who wins it the most over a 5 year period gets to keep it. It is a great time, but I'm a little biased!

    This year's is next Friday, October 6th at 6pm.

    Just to update everyone, I went to the VBFD site and the above event looks like it was postponed until November 4th due to nasty weather. Thanks.
