The annual fire truck parade is this week in Clinton.
It's part of Fire Prevention week and Clinton Fire's Blake West says 25-30 trucks from across central Illinois will converge on the Junior High School to take part in the route that ends at the downtown Clinton Square.
The annual parade is attended by a couple-dozen departments from across central Illinois and West feels it is something everyone looks forward to.
A refurbished smokehouse will be on the square as tool to teach youth about fire safety and what to do when a fire may be in your home.
The fire truck parade is set to get underway around 7 pm, originating from Clinton Junior High School. West indicates they expecta larger than normal turnout this year as they've received a lot of early RSVPs.
