Bel Air Fire Centennial Features Parade

September 23, 1990

Nearly 20,000 people lined the streets of Bel Air Sept. 15 to watch the parade celebrating the centennial of the Bel Air Volunteer Fire Co.

The parade, which lasted about two hours, featured performances by 16 marching bands, the Mummers from Philadelphia and the Colts Marching Band.

The parade started on Lee Street and followed Bond Street to the Bel Air High School complex.

Meanwhile, a flea market tempted festival-goers with fire company collectibles and memorabilia like shirts, key chains.

The Bel Air company is one of the busiest volunteer companies in the state, handling about 1,000 calls a year.
