25th Annual Fire and Rescue Parade of Lights
THURSDAY, October 8, 2020 – 6:30pm
The South Holland Fire Department is pleased to sponsor an annual PARADE OF LIGHTS in conjunction with National Fire Prevention Week, October 4-10, 2020.
The Parade of Lights has been attended by hundreds of residents in the past years. This is a very quiet, reverent way that we as Fire Departments can pay our respect to not only the fire fighters who have lost their lives in fires, but also to the civilians as well. Residents have commented on how impressive and beautiful this parade is. The way the emergency lights of the fire apparatus light up the night is really something to see.
The PARADE OF LIGHTS will take place on THURSDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2020.
The annual Parade of Lights that was originally scheduled for October 6 has been cancelled in light of Firefighter Dylan Cunningham’s funeral.
A revised Parade of Lights will take place on Thursday, October 8 at 6:30pm to honor Cunningham along with all of the other who have fallen this year.
The short parade of lights will transport through South Holland only. We encourage residents to stand along the route with candles or lights to honor Cunningham.
