The Knox CFA Fire Brigades Group is holding a Torchlight Parade on Saturday March 2nd 2013 at 8.30pm leaving from Ferntree Gully fire Station in The Avenue, Ferntree Gully.

Knox and Dandenong Ranges residents are invited to come and support their local CFA Fire Brigades, as well at those coming from far and wide!

An awesome spectacle, this bi-annual event will be held in conjunction with the annual Knox Festival.  Over 18 fire brigades and 300+ firefighters will march with lighted long stem torches from the Ferntree Gully fire station along Station St, Spring St. and Brenock Park Drive to the oval. They will be accompanied by three of Victoria’s best pipe bands:

  • Victoria Police Pipes and Drums
  • Ambulance Victoria Pipe Band and
  • Ringwood RSL Pipe Band

After the bands have come together to play Amazing Grace, a spectacular fireworks display will bring the march to a spectacular close.

Members of the public are requested to show their support for these fire brigades and line the streets to the Ferntree Gully football ground.
