SOUTH SALEM, N.Y. -- Firefighters from South Salem and nearby towns marched in the fire department's parade Wednesday night, Aug. 6, on Route 35.

Aside from South Salem, fire departments also came from Goldens Bridge, Vista, Croton Falls Bedford, Katonah and Pound Ridge in New York and from Ridgefield, Darien, Stamford, Danbury, New Canaan, Rowayton and Redding in Connecticut.

A Lewisboro police car and members of the Lewisboro Volunteer Ambulance Corps also participated. Musical marchers, including bagpipers, also took part.
