Planning is now underway for North Carolina's Main Street Fire Truck Parade.

The parade will take place on Saturday morning, August 13th and begin at 9:00 a.m. Note that this is one hour earlier than the start time for 2010.

The route of travel will be from the North Carolina State Capitol, traveling south down historic Fayetteville Street. The parade will then turn west to Davie then south to Salisbury Street, where units will pass the Raleigh Convention Center.

The units will park post parade on Cabarrus Street on the north side of the Raleigh Convention Center for inspection and photographs.

We will be taking registrations for the following slots:
