RAVENA, NY - The Ravena Fire Department celebrated 125 years of service to the community on Saturday, August 27th.

The department held a parade through the village that ended at Mosher Park in Ravena, where the annual Friendship Festival took place following the parade. There were various vendors and games in the park, as well as demonstrations from Ravena Fire and Albany County Sheriffs, and pie eating competitions and other events throughout the day.

Awards were given to participants in the parade, and awards and proclamations were also given to Ravena Fire. The night ended with fireworks in the park.

Residents loved the idea of the parade leading into the Friendship Festival and have already expressed their thoughts on making it a tradition in years to come.
