VIDEO: Fun had at Uniacke Firefighter Fair Parade

MOUNT UNIACKE: Mother Nature’s persistent push and threat of rain didn’t seem to dampen the spirits along the route for the Firefighter Fair parade in Mount Uniacke on June 24.

While the number of people lined up appeared to be down compared to previous years, said people by the Uniacke Fire Hall, the excitement level wasn’t.

The parade brought many smiles to the faces of those young and old.

Besides the parade, there was carnival activities Friday and Saturday, a kids run, and of course the fireworks which attracted hundreds on Friday night. That’s just naming a few of the events that took place as part of the fair.

Reporter Pat Healey was snapping away– and even took some video–of the parade.He did some tweeting too, so look for that at @Laker_PatHealey or search for #MountUniacke on twitter.

Look for a photo gallery later next week on our website (in the Photo Gallery section) and coverage in the July 5 issue of The Weekly Press.
