175th celebration at annual Washington’s Day Parade in Greenport

The Greenport Fire Department held its 175th annual Washington’s Birthday parade Saturday, a celebration of both the tradition and the department’s rich history.

The chilly weather didn’t stop people from lining the streets as firefighters from departments all across the East End marched in the parade.
