Come one, come all – Historic Downtown Littleton is gearing up for Mile High Hook and Ladder’s 31st annual Fire Truck Parade and Muster, sponsored by Schomp Honda! Held on Saturday, June 11, the parade will commence at 9am near Broadway and Littleton Boulevard. Traveling through the downtown district, the vehicles will “muster” at Arapahoe Community College from 10am-1pm in an event filled with family-friendly fun. At 6pm, be sure to head over to Littleton’s Main Street for the ultimate block party.

Parade * Historic Downtown Littleton * 9am
Fire Muster * Arapahoe Community College * 10am-1pm
Block Party * Littleton’s Main Street * 6pm-11pm

Parade of Firetrucks

Highlights for the day will include a hand-cranked, wooden-wheeled 1914 Federal Chemical truck, Littleton’s magnificent “Black Pearl” ladder truck, Schomp’s American LaFrance fire truck, and many more beautifully-restored machines.

Junior firefighters can get drenched during the bucket brigade, aim high-pressure fire hoses at the house-a-fire, and try on the heavy, protective bunker gear worn by real firefighters. During an extrication demonstration, firefighters will arrive “lights and siren” to pry apart a crushed car with the jaws of life.

Overview of Parade

Following the muster, join Mile High Hook and Ladder and Schomp Honda for Littleton’s “Magic on Main Street” block party. Another free, family-friendly event, the block party runs from 6-11pm and features live music, dancing, circus acts, and two fireworks shows at 9:30 and 10:45pm.

Kids Fire Truck Helmets

Schomp Honda’s sponsorship of the Fire Muster originated when long-time employee Jim Biner located an abandoned, rusted fire truck in a field across the street from Arapahoe Motors, our original facility! Jim and a dedicated group of volunteers donated hundreds of hours sanding, painting, and applying scrollwork – restoring the American LaFrance to its original glory. The rest, as they say, is history.
