WALLINGTON, NJ - The annual Wallington Fire Department's Holiday Parade has been canceled for 2019, according to an announcement posted on the group's Facebook page. The annual event draws fire departments from around the region to participate. This year would have been the 18th annual parade.

The group said "after much discussion and consideration by the parade committee, it was recommended to the Fire Department at our department meeting on Monday August 19, 2019 to not run a parade this year. A formal vote was taken by the membership and concurred with our recommendation." A letter was then send to Wallington's Mayor and Council.

The group pointed to various factors in its decision, including a decrease in sponsorships to help offset the increasing costs of hosting the event. It also noted "trouble recruiting enough of our own members to make a full commitment" from pre-planning to executing the annual undertaking.
