The Wise Av­enue Vol­un­teer Fire Com­pany marked its 75th an­niver­sary in grand — and loud! — fash­ion on Satur­day with a pa­rade of fire­fight­ing equip­ment down Wise Av­enue. The pa­rade, fea­tur­ing ap­pa­ra­tus from de­part­ments across the county, made its way from Grays Road to Church Road lead­ing up to a day-long cel­e­bra­tion fea­tur­ing demon­stra­tions, a flea mar­ket and more at the North Point Govern­ment Cen­ter.

The Wise Av­enue Vol­un­teer Fire Com­pany led the pa­rade last Satur­day.

On­look­ers waved as the fire­fight­ers passed by.

The pa­rade made its way down Wise Av­enue to Church Road, where it con­cluded.

The English Con­sul Ju­nior Fire Depart­ment from south­west­ern Bal­ti­more County showed their sup­port for the Wise Av­enue Vol­un­teer Fire Com­pany.

The Pikesville Vol­un­teer Fire Com­pany owns sev­eral pieces of his­toric equip­ment, in­clud­ing this 1966 Mack C695.

Lo­cal of­fi­cials, in­clud­ing Coun­cil­man Todd Cran­dell (R-7) and Del. Bob Long (R-6) joined in the fun.
