Parade Vehicle



Our Parade Vehicle is a fire engine with a difference and it's perfect for drawing attention and pleasing crowds at events.

With glittering paintwork, a smoke and snow machine and loud speakers to play music to crowds the Parade Vehicle always causes a stir.


Eight people can stand on the top of the vehicle secured by a lockable barrier to ensure their safety.

If it's cold the Parade Vehicle can blow fake snow or if the weather is too warm for snow it can blow bubbles.

Two smoke machines are located at the bottom of the vehicle, which emit smoke at ground levels.


The specially adapted fire engine has four speakers and a PA system capable of playing audio from CDs, USB storage devices or auxiliary devices.

The PA also has a microphone for announcements.

The vehicle can also display messages using its inbuilt laser equipment.
