The Huntington Manor Fireman's Fair is the LARGEST fireman's fair on Long Island - and this year they celebrated their 115th anniversary with carnival rides, festival food, a beer tent, fun games of chance, live music, fireworks, and a major parade.
This widely attended parade was held on Wednesday, July 18 (beginning at 7:30pm) - and included marching by 13 fire departments (and EMTs). The roads were filled with firefighters in uniform, bagpipers, drummers, firetrucks, ambulances, vintage cars - and plenty of American flags!
The fairgrounds - at Henry L. Stimson Middle School - were packed with local residents partaking in the summer fun! Excellent weather, local pride, and the sights, sounds, and scents of good old-fashioned summer revelry all melded together into a perfect night not soon to be forgotten.
Living Huntington photographer Tisa Cassidy was on the scene, camera in hand. Peruse some of her photos below to see if you recognize any of your neighbors :-)
