ST. REGIS FALLS –– The fireworks and field days may be cancelled for this year, but the community is still planning to hold a Fourth of July parade –– albeit one a little different than in years past.
The St. Regis Falls Fire Department plans to honor all front-line essential workers with a parade featuring law enforcement and fire and emergency medical response vehicles. The parade is set to step off at 11 a.m. from the St. Regis Falls Central School and follow the traditional parade route through town.
The department also plans to hold its traditional chicken barbecue as a take-out only event, with first responders eating for free and others asked to make donations. This will also be take-out only and all participants must follow COVID-19 regulations.
“We want to give back to the people who are still fighting,” said SRF Fire Chief Wilbur Bailey.
