KENDALL – The annual Firemen’s Carnival has returned to Kendall with an hour-long parade the highlight of tonight’s festivities. It was quite a spectacle with youngsters dressed as hippies, tractors pulling floats, fire trucks from three counties and the Kendall Lawn Chair Ladies.

The parade was led by a group of Vietnam veterans from Rochester and ended with a line of fire trucks.

The three-day carnival continues Saturday, wrapping up with fireworks at 10:20 p.m.
