CLEARFIELD – Some people wait to see who will be nominated for an Oscar every year. For others, they hold their breath until the NFL draft is completed and a full list of rookies is released. Still some are interested in a much different list: the Clearfield Firemen’s Parade line-up.
This year, 123 entries will be in the parade, which starts at 6 p.m. July 31. A total of three divisions will roll through the route, and a special pre-division will lead the parade, which is sponsored by CSB Bank.
