Webster Firemen’s Carnival & Parade

Tonight marks the beginning of the annual Fireman’s Carnival in Webster – the parade begins at 6:30 PM, and the carnival runs through Saturday night’s midnight fireworks display.

This year the parade is expected to be bigger than ever, as fire companies from farther afield than usual will be attending to show their support for Webster, which suffered the tragic loss of two firefighters in December of last year. Those who come to enjoy the parade and the carnival this year, make sure to send your thoughts and prayers to the families of Michael Chiapperini and Tomasz Kaczowka, for whom this will be the first carnival since the tragedy. It will likely be a difficult weekend for them, and we at Yesterday’s Muse Books wish them all the best.

On a brighter note, another of the firefighters injured on that day recently returned to service. Our thanks go out to Joseph Hofstetter for his continued service, as well as to Theodore Scardino, who was also wounded and is still recovering.
