The Lafayette Fire Department is inviting parents and their children to participate in a “drive-by” parade on Saturday, October 17th from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Firefighters say the event is part of their month long Fire Prevention Week campaign to reduce house fires in Lafayette Parish.

The drive-by parade will take place at the department's Fire Prevention Bureau located at 2100 Jefferson Street.

Parents will be able to drive through the parking lot where a fire truck, aerial ladder and fire safety house will be on display.

The fire department says that the first 200 children will receive a fire safety goody bag along with pizza and a drink.

Sparky, the department's mascot, will also be on hand to wave at the kids as they pass by.
