Fire trucks from along the east coast were decorated with lights and drove the streets of Wallington, New Jersey, Saturday for the annual holiday parade.
The Ogdensburg Fire Department’s fire engine, decorated with 55 strings of lights, featured inflatables of an elf, snowman and teddy bear.
“We’re not allowed to have Santa Claus,” Carolyn Sugar moaned good-naturedly.
One of the parade rules is no Santa Claus inflatables or impersonators on your truck; Mr. and Mrs. Claus appear on the last fire engine in the parade.
Another rule was no sirens in what WallingtonNJ.org called, “The Nation’s biggest procession of lighted and decorated fire trucks and floats.”
It was the 12th year for the parade, according to WallingtonNJ.org.
