Despite announcing on June 30 that it had no choice but to cancel the annual Firefighters’ Day due to lack of time for planning and coordination, the Town of Pincourt revisted the issue at the July 13 council meeting and has opted to reinstate the popular parade – albeit on a smaller scale.
The yearly event which is hosted in lieu of Saint-Jean Baptise and Canada Day celebrations features firefighters and emergency vehicles from across the Vaudreuil-Soulanges region and has been an annual celebration since 1980, with the exception of 2020 due to the pandemic.
The motion was passed unanimously and ‘with pleasure’ by council.
“The parade will take place Saturday, September 18,” said Mayor Yvan Cardinal. “I’m sure the news will also be received ‘with pleasure’ by the citizens of Pincourt.”
The time, route, and number of vehicles have yet to be determined.
