We are proud to announce our 38th Annual Michigan Firemen's Memorial Festival. Fire Chiefs, Fire Fighters, EMS and thousands of friends and family from all over the United States and Foreign countries will gather in September in memory of the valiant Fire Fighters who gave the supreme sacrifice of their lives while protecting their communities. This year we will begin our Festival at the Roscommon County Fire Training Grounds(formerly known as the Roscommon Fair Grounds) on Thursday with family night. Beginning at 4:00 p.m., there will be craft projects for the children, a fire safety trailer, and free hot dogs and pop. Ronald McDonald will do a magic show at 6 p.m. On Friday, there will be a full day of activities. At 7:00 p.m. Friday, we will have our Bright Light Vehicle Showdown followed by a Light Parade. Saturday at 9:00 am, we invite you to join with the Michigan State Firemen's Association at the Memorial site to pay tribute to all Fire Fighters. Then at 11:00 am in downtown Roscommon, we will hold our annual Firemen's Parade of bands, floats and the largest display firefighting and rescue equipment in Northern Michigan. The parade begins on M-76 at the Western outskirts of the village and proceeds through town to county road 103 and on to the fairgrounds. Please visit our website for more details.
