THREE days of celebrations over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend were organised to commemorate Euroa Urban Fire Brigade’s 125th year.
On Friday night the celebrations kicked off with a traditional firefighter’s torchlight parade from the Shire Offices, along Binney Street and to the Memorial Oval.
16 brigades joined in the march, all dressed in ceremonial uniform.
The visiting brigades came from across the region (and some from outside), and included Nagambie, Shepparton, Molka, Strathbogie, Wallan, and Kelvin View, to name but a few.
As the brigades entered the oval they were welcomed by the Euroa Citizens Band, who played as they marched around the complex.
Following the march came the fireworks- the first in Euroa for 25 years- which proved a huge hit with the crowd who had come to watch.
All in all it was a very successful night, with many people from outside the CFA coming along to join in the celebrations.
