On Thursday at 9 p.m., after a day of Hudson-Mohawk Association events, there will be a memorial service at the Central Fire Station for Hudson and Greenport firefighters who have died in the past year.
Friday night is the Mardi Gras Parade, which begins at 6 p.m. For this parade, the fire companies decorate their trucks, the theme for this year being "Christmas in July." The Mardi Gras Parade begins on Partition and East Court streets and heads to Warren Street by way of Union and South Fourth street and then goes up Warren to Seventh and across Seventh to the Central Firehouse.
On Saturday is the Dress Parade. Twenty-five units are expected to march in this year's parade, including fire companies in their best bib and tucker, drum lines, bagpipes, and firetrucks. The parade begins at 4 p.m., but here's the question: Will it march upstreet or downstreet?
