Bakersfield firefighters were in the Big Apple, or should we say the ‘Big Shamrock’, this weekend celebrating St. Patrick’s Day.
Bakersfield Fire Department shared a video with 17 News of some local firefighters marching the streets of New York City in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade Saturday.
They were invited by the members of the New York Fire Department Engine 16 Tower Ladder 7 in Manhattan.
They say it was an experience that was on a very short bucket list and it was an incredible honor to march along side fellow firefighters from Bakersfield and across the country.
The parade kicked off at 5th Avenue and ran all the way up to 79th Street.
