Firemen's Carnival - 1947
FIREMEN'S CARNIVAL IN FULL SWING HERE
The Delmar Firemen's Carnival which opened Monday night at the carnival grounds on the Maryland side of town has been in full swing all the week. The weather has been exceptionally favorable, and each night finds a crowd at the grounds, where various attractions have been provided for both adults and children.
Wednesday night, the Firemen held a parade at 8:00 o'clock with fire companies from all parts of the Peninsula being in the line of march, as well as Ladies Auxiliaries, drum and bugle Corps. and various organizations. The parade formed at the Delaware school grounds and marched up State Street to Railroad Avenue then to the carnival grounds where it disbanded. Prizes were awarded.
The carnival will close Saturday night, when a new Pontiac automobile will be given away. Proceeds from the carnival will be used to help buy equipment. The company has purchased an ambulance which they hope will be delivered in a short time.
