Firemen's Centennial Parade

Various Artists
Firemen's Centennial Parade

On June 6, 1964, 16 marching bands came together in Lamberville, New Jersey, to mark the centennial of two local volunteer fire companies with a pageant that showcased the region’s history and fire equipment. Drum and bugle corps performed energetic marches, with high school bands and pipers also contributing to the music of the day. The low chugging of passing fire equipment and incidental sounds capture the atmosphere of the celebration. While a recording of overlapping music and sounds may seem unlikely, it evokes the informal and joyous spirit of a festival.

Liner notes include a history of firemen, music, and parades.
