The Borough Administration, Fire Marshal, Borough Fire Chief, and Jenkintown School District have reviewed all site conditions, size, fuel, safety plan and other details to ensure the safety of the participants and surrounding areas.

The Borough has placed “No Parking” signs on Greenwood Avenue between Walnut Street and Highland Avenue as well as on Highland Avenue between Greenwood Avenue and the link.

Residents may park in the Teacher’s Lot off of Highland Avenue to attend the event. Please note however, that Greenwood Avenue between Walnut Street and Highland Avenue will be closed to allow for the staging of fire apparatus.
