The annual Montour Falls Fire Department Festival concluded Saturday with a day full of rides, food, music, bingo, a chicken barbecue, and a beer tent. The festival, held along Route 224, ran from Thursday evening through Saturday night.


The highlight was a parade at 5 p.m. on Saturday down Main Street. It featured 10 bands, including the Hitmen from Rochester, along with floats, antique vehicles, fire trucks, horses, and tractors. Live music was performed at the Parmenter Sound Stage throughout the event, featuring Goin’ South Entertainment, Clark Jackson, the Dean Goble Band, and Random Tangent.

Festival Chair Keith Pierce noted that this event is the fire department’s only fundraiser of the year, supporting their essential services.
