History

Our goal of the DuBois Volunteer Fire Department was to great a Community event that everyone could get behind and participate in. Only non-profit groups can make money from the event. Individual DuBois Volunteer Fire Department hose companies, including other non-profits, can sell food and other items to raise funds. Every group, both non-profit or for-profit companies involved in the event, that participates does something to contribute back to the event in some sort of non-monetary way.

Fun history fact: The parade has been around a lot longer than Community Days. Community Days actually grew from events surrounding the parade, and has always been in the City Park. The first year only had two food booths and generators for electric. Throughout the strong support from the DuBois area communities, major upgrades were completed throughout the years including the installation of a vast electrical supply system, the Edward V. Cherry Amphitheatre, and a park wide PA announcement system.
