The 36th Annual Michigan Firemen’s Memorial Festival
Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday September 17, 18, 19, and 20, 2015
Sponsored by the Michigan Firemen’s Memorial Festival Committee!
We are proud to announce our Annual Michigan Firemen’s Memorial Festival. Fire Chiefs, Fire Fighters, EMS and thousands of friends and family from all over the United States and Foreign countries will gather in September in memory of the valiant Fire Fighters who gave the supreme sacrifice of their lives while protecting their communities.
This year we will begin our Festival at the Roscommon County Fire Training Grounds (formerly known as the Roscommon Fair Grounds) on Thursday with family night. Beginning at 4:00 p.m., there will be craft projects for the children, a fire safety trailer, and free hot dogs and pop. Ronald McDonald will do a magic show at 5 p.m. The BAR WILL NOT BE OPEN Thursday night.
On Friday, there will be a full day of activities. We anticipate that all our arts, crafts, and fire vendors will have arrived and some demonstrations will be scheduled. There will also be free activities for children. A badge will be needed to enter the bar. At 7:00 p.m. Friday, we will have our Bright Light Vehicle Showdown followed by a Light Parade.
Saturday at 9:00 am, we invite you to join with the Michigan State Firemen’s Association at the Memorial site to pay tribute to all Fire Fighters. They will conduct the Annual Memorial Service and placing of memorial wreaths by Fire Fighter organizations, service clubs and others will also take place.
Then at 11:00 am in downtown Roscommon, we will hold our annual Firemen’s Parade of bands, floats and the largest display firefighting and rescue equipment in Northern Michigan. The parade begins on M-76 at the Western outskirts of the village and proceeds through town to county road 103 and on to the fairgrounds.
