This weekend will be the start of the annual Cincinnatus Fireman Field Days, with family-friendly events going on throughout the weekend.

The fair is hosted by the local Cincinnatus Fire Department at 2647 Route 26, Cincinnatus, N.Y. Attractions and events include rides, bicycle races, live music and a parade. Parking is free.

The event is usually held during the Fourth of July weekend but was scheduled earlier this year to avoid conflicting with Cincinnatus High School’s graduation ceremonies.

“We only ask for donations on Sunday to get in,” said Corey Brenchley, Cincinnatus Assistant Fire Chief and chairman of the event. “That money funds the fireworks display.”

Monies raised during the event are used to help host the event the following year, Brenchley said.

The fairgrounds will open at 4 p.m. Friday, and rides will open at 6 p.m. along with a bicycle race. Local band Raised on Radio will be performing from 7-10 p.m.

Fairgrounds open at 9 a.m. Saturday and at 8 a.m. Sunday. Rides will open at 1 p.m. on both days.

The parade kicks off at 6 p.m. Saturday at the Cincinnatus Bowling Alley

The fireworks display will be happening at 7 p.m. Sunday.

The parade will start at the Country Lanes bowling alley, located at 2930 Route 26, and end at the town’s Heritage Hall Congregational Church.
