Firemen's parade today, fireworks tonight

Today is the final day of the annual New Jersey State Firemen's Convention.

The highlight of the festivities, the Firemen's Parade, will kick off at 1 p.m. sharp from Crocus Road in the Crest. It will continue up New Jersey Avenue, eventually ending at 8th Avenue in North Wildwood.

On average, the parade is four and half hours long. This year's procession will feature over 300 pieces of apparatus by over 200 individual companies from four states. A total of 18 bands will perform along the parade route, and prizes will be awarded at the Wildwoods Convention Center tonight at 9 p.m.

At 10 p.m., the final fireworks display of the year will be set off on the beach at Pine Avenue.
