Firefighters Continued tom page 26 tween St. Lawrence and Laur streets and the parade will step off at First Street and Rehoboth Av- enue, proceeding right toward the ocean, around the Bandstand at the Boardwalk and west along Re- hoboth Avenue to Grove Park near the entrance to the city. According to Doyle, there will be 59 fire companies from Delaware bringing 277 pieces of equipment to the parade, with six out-of-state companies adding an additional 10 pieces. There will also be 15 musical marching units in the line-up, the largest number ever, including the Delaware Na- tional Guard Marching Band. Doyle assured that this year DelDOT's message sign on Route One informing people of the pa- rade will not state that Rehoboth Avenue is closed. It will direct ap- paratus to the staging area at Bay Mart and that the parade begins at 1 p.m. Both Doyle and Ferrese advise the public to arrive in the city no later than 12:15 p.m. if they are planning on viewing the parade. (Parking on South First Street will be prohibited.) Once the parade begins, any traffic coming into Rehoboth Beach from Rehoboth Avenue ex- tended will be able to reach the north side. of town using Colum- bia Avetiue, although Columbia from Grove to Rehoboth Avenue will be closed to all traffic. Those wishing to travel to the south side of the city may use Christian Street. Rehoboth Avenue will be closed from Second StTeet to the Bandstand beginning at noon until the parade passes. Also, this year, rather than hav- ing the apparatus parked on Co- lumbia and Henlopen avenues during the awards presentation at The Grove, the apparatus will be taken to the park and ride lot out- side of town to alleviate conges- tion. Officials estimate the parade should be three hours in duration while the awards ceremony should last an hour after the last units have passed the judging area, which will be located near Sir Guy's in the westbound lane of Rehoboth Avenue. As this is the second of a three- year trial in holding the confer- ence in Rehoboth-Dewey, the DVFA will evaluate the success of the 1996 conference in Decem- ber and decide if they will return after 1997.
