PHOTOS: The New Hope Eagle Fire Company pulled out all the stops on Saturday for its 200th anniversary by hosting a fire parade through the streets of town. As sirens wailed, more than 65 companies from throughout Bucks County - and beyond - rolled down Main and Bridge streets, showcasing the latest in fire apparatus and restored antiques. Companies came from as far away as Edgely in Lower Bucks and Springtown in Upper Bucks to help Eagle celebrate. Other companies responded from Lambertville, Midway, Newtown, Upper Makefield, Doylestown, Yardley-Makefield, Morrisville among many others. Residents and business owners filled the sidewalks along what would have been a busy Saturday morning in downtown New Hope to wave flags and to applaud their hometown volunteers.
