On what some say is the Official kick off to the holiday season in the Coatesville area, the Annual Coatesville Christmas Parade was held on Saturday December 4th. The Parade began promptly at 10 am.

Modena was once again in attendance for this event, members gathered early to do some final touch up and decorating of apparatus. Once all was ready units proceeded to the lineup point on S. First Ave in the city where we were joined by multiple other mutual aid companies.

Prior to the parade, members mingled with the multiple companies that were in attendance. Using the time to talk with friends.

Then at 10 am the parade began going from First Ave. to Eleventh Ave along Lincoln Hwy. Once cleared the parade route the two engine remained in the city to help cover the area until parade ended.

As always our volunteers worked hard to keep our apparatus in tip top shape and clean this hard work paid off as Modena was awarded second place fire apparatus.
