North Aurora to Aurora
Staging 5:30 PM-6:30 PM / Kickoff 6:30 PM SHARP
This year the Emergency Vehicle Lights & Sirens Procession will travel a new 11 mile route through North Aurora and Aurora and end with a static display at the Aurora Transportation Center. Staging begins at 5:30 PM at the former Farmers Insurance/Everest College parking lot, 150 S. Lincolnway (Route 31), North Aurora, IL 60542 just north of the Route 31 I-88 exit and Airport Rd. There will be a porta-potty at the staging area. The procession kicks off at 6:30 PM sharp and arrives at 7:30 p.m. at the Aurora Transportation Center, 415 N. Broadway St., Aurora, IL 60505. Those who do not wish to stay for the static display will be turned around after entering the Aurora Transportation Center parking lot.
In order to better honor our public safety providers and protect the hobby, please no unmarked police cars in the Emergency Vehicle Lights & Sirens Procession unless they are government owned or antique (model year 1994 or older). Tow vehicles and trailers may be temporarily parked at the staging area or at the Aurora Transportation Center.
Chicagoland Emergency Vehicle Show Day Cancelled
Unfortunately we must announce that the Saturday Chicagoland Emergency Show sponsored Village of Oswego and Oswego Firefighters Local #4773 has been cancelled due to outside obligations by show organizer Dave Weaver who has decided to hang his hat as CEVS organizer. Dave apologizes to the many FD members and civilian volunteers who were poised to assist this year and to the many collectors and spectators who may have taken vacation time and planned their weekend to attend Saturday’s cancelled event. Oswego FD has done an amazing job the last 3 years and we hope to see the CEVS reincarnated in 2020 but it’s future is unknown. Until then, please participate and enjoy the 2019 Emergency Vehicle Lights & Sirens Procession!
