Blistering heat and humidity didn’t stop a crowd from turning out to enjoy a favorite summertime event on the North Fork last night.

Folks lined up along Main Road in Jamesport to watch the Jamesport Fire Department’s annual parade, featuring fire departments from across the East End, EMS agencies, veterans groups, classic trucks and antique tractors.

The Jamesport Fireman’s Bazaar opened Tuesday and continues through Saturday. The bazaar opens at 6 p.m. each evening — Saturday at 5 p.m. — on the grounds of the George Young Community Center on South Jamesport Avenue in Jamesport. The bazaar concludes with a spectacular fireworks show Saturday night.
