March With Us

The Spencerport Volunteer Firemen’s Parade Committee is pleased that you are joining us for this year’s parade. This is a community-wide event that brings over one-thousand people to Spencerport annually. For the safety and consideration of all residential and business properties, parade-goers and other participants, please read, understand and comply with the following:

Our Mission

The Spencerport Volunteer Firemen’s Association Parade is a "community celebration" dedicated to the friends, neighbors, and businesses that support and collaborate with the men and women volunteers of the Spencerport Fire District. Entrants are encouraged to display their pride and patriotism. Parade entries shall be fun, entertaining, family-oriented and crowd pleasing. 

 

 

Formation

Line-up begins at approximately 6pm on Thursday, June 9, 2022. The Grand Parade begins promptly at 7pm. Please do not trespass on residential property during the parade formation process. Respect your neighbors. If you damage property, your group will be held responsible for costs incurred as a result.

Grand Parade Route

The parade officially begins at Lyell Avenue and Union Street, then starts down Union Street through the Village of Spencerport, proceeding north past the viewing stand at Union Street and East Avenue and turning left onto Amity Street and ending at Amity Street and the Post Office. Parade Marshals and Fire Police will be available the day of the parade to assist you.

Placement

Units should print a copy of the instruction sheet and have it with you on parade day. The official formation line-up details will be available online one week prior to the event. Be sure to have a copy of the instruction sheet with you on parade day. Please keep your group in your assigned location. To avoid confusion, tell all of your group participants what your division and line-up location is. Any unit arriving late will be placed at the end of the parade. We will post the line-up information on the fire department website.

Dignity

This is a family event and we expect that dignity will be preserved by the enforcement of all rules and regulations as outlined herein, and officials be strict in their interpretation thereof. No vulgar, non-family friendly signage, clothing, music, etc. will be allowed. No illegal substances will be allowed on or near any vehicle or to be used by any parade participant. Violation will automatically result in the removal of your unit from the parade and possible banning from future participation.

Safety Agreement

Throwing or selling of candy, beads, or any item from vehicles, floats, marchers, or participants along the parade route is prohibited. This creates a dangerous situation for youngsters running into the road and the potential for serious injury. Your participation in next year’s parade may be denied if your group is identified as having ignored this request.

Youth Parade

As has been done in previous years, due to the increased participation of parade-goers, the Spencerport Volunteer Firemen's Association in partnership with the Spencerport Ladies Auxiliary will once again be asking all youth organizations to please sign up for the Youth Parade.  The Youth Parade will be held on Wednesday, June 8, 2022 at 7pm, and will commence from Slayton Avenue to the Carnival Grounds.  We appreciate your cooperation and understanding and look forward to your participation.
