The Hannibal Fire Company will kick off its annual three day firemen’s fair and music shows, Thursday Aug. 16 on Rochester Street in Hannibal. With a variety of activities and live music, the Hannibal Firemen’s Fair is one of the oldest and largest in Central New York.
Starting off the events will be a parade on Aug. 16 at 7 p.m., complete with marching bands, floats, fire apparatus, and many other entries totaling over 100 units. Starting at the school bus garage on Auburn Street, the parade route winds down through the village, up Cayuga Street, to Rochester Street, and onto the firemen’s field.
