The Limerick Fire Department will be hosting the Annual Fireman’s Association of the State of Pennsylvania Convention & Parade in honor of one hundred plus years of volunteer fire services in Limerick Township. The convention will begin on Wednesday 09/22/2021, kicking off the 4-day event with a golf tournament at Landis Creek Golf Club and culminating with a parade up Ridge Pike on Saturday 09/25/2021. During the event, we will be hosting meetings and classroom trainings Wednesday through Friday at various locations in the Township for the conference attendees.  There will also be various events in the evening during the week at local restaurants, firehouses and more for attendees to view new fire apparatus and equipment.

The convention concludes with a large parade on Saturday at noon and we are expecting over 200 pieces of apparatus, several marching units and hopefully the World-Famous Budweiser Clydesdales. The parade does close Ridge Pike between Townshipline Road and Lewis Road at 9am and will remain closed until the parade ends a few hours later.  The parade will begin at Royersford Road and proceed West on Ridge Pike to Swamp Pike and then to Ziegler Road and conclude at the Limerick Community Park. Vendors and refreshments will be available at the park following the parade for attendees and the public where all trophies and awards will be announced two (2) hours after the parade concludes.

The parade is rain or shine. The public is invited to attend and line the parade route to view the apparatus and other parade attendees.  We will be following all CDC guidelines for social distancing and masks for the safety of our parade participants and public attendees. Souvenirs commemorating the convention, food and drink will be available for purchase before and after the parade as well as at both fire stations in Limerick and Linfield in the time leading up to the parade. Additional information will be updated on the LFD website as it becomes available.

Questions can be emailed to:  FASP2021@LFD51.ORG

Please plan to attend and celebrate 100 years of volunteer fire services in Limerick Township with us!
