March 16th -17th

Delray Beach has become the home of the "Best Small Home Town" parade in the U.S.

This parade tradition started in 1968 and has grown over the years to a destination parade. In 2010 the theme of the parade changed to pay tribute to the International Emergency Services community (police, firefighters, paramedics and military services. 

Guns and Hoses Travel Company is proud to be not only a supporter of this parade, but also the official housing and travel agency for the parade participants and attendees.

We have several options for hotel accommodations to fit any budget. Our main accommodations for parade participants keep you within walking distance of the parade route and festivities. We offer special rates for anyone in the International Emergency Services community (I.D. required).

We are working closely with the parade organizer, John Fischer, a retired firefighter, to make sure everything is taken care of for participants from airport shuttles, to parade shuttles. Guns and Hoses Travel is a licensed travel agency dedicated to the public services community.

Enjoy this massive parade from the side, or if you are a firefighter, veteran, police, etc. you are invited to walk in the parade. Pipes and drum bands are invited to participate in the parade.
