Drone Over Fire Department Christmas Parade : 1 Minute Adventure #7 HD

by on June 9, 2015

Every year in my home town of Middle Island, our fire department puts on a huge parade, It drives around a good portion of the entire town putting on a large and creative Christmas parade. I looked forward to it every year growing up and it’s one of the things I miss so much now living in LA. This year on my trip back home I brought my DJI Phantom 2 with me with the intention of filming the whole show from above. I have several friends at the Fire House and have them a heads up of the two spots I planned on waiting for them so they wouldn’t be caught off guard. Areas with no crossing wires or low hanging trees that I scouted out.

The show these guys put on is amazing. These volunteer’s go way out of their way to create unique floats every year. Ontop of that the parade is an all day and all night event. It’s a ton of work and I hope I never have to see the end of it. It’s honestly on of my favorite parts of the holiday.

Gear Used:
GoPro Hero4 Black
DJI Phantom2
