Parade registration began at 11:3o a.m.  LTFD  decided to refrain from judging the apparatus this year. That will allowed them to focus less on competition and more on the fire service brotherhood. Prizes were be awarded. The parade began at 2 p.m. sharp.

Staging area was at West Street. The parade route was approximately 1.5 miles long.

After the parade, participating companies returned to the staging site for award presentation and apparatus display for Lancaster Township Community Day activities.
