VIDEO: Honeymoon Bay fire department celebrates 70th anniversary on July 1

Honeymoon Bay’s firefighters marked 70 years of service with a parade, a display of equipment and even more on the Canada Day long weekend.

Scheduled to take place just ahead of the community’s Canada Day celebrations at the community hall, the event drew a good crowd, and several other fire departments also sent trucks to add to the celebration.

The department also held an open house at their hall, and a dinner as part of the celebration.
