24th Annual Silent Parade
Friday, October 12, 2018 at
The Downers Grove Fire Department will conclude Fire Prevention Week by hosting the Silent Parade. The parade pays tribute to all those who have lost their lives to fire and features fire department vehicles from many surrounding villages. All vehicles will display lights only; no sirens will be sounded.
The parade will begin in Hinsdale at 7:00 p.m. and pass through Downers Grove at Main and Maple at approximately 7:15 p.m. People may assemble along Maple Avenue to view the parade and pay tribute by holding a flashlight as the cortege passes.
The night will conclude with a brief memorial observance and tribute to firefighters at Trinity Lutheran Church in Lisle, just south of Route 53 and Maple Avenue.
