Mount Kisco Ancients Fife & Drum Wins Award; Prepares for MKFD Parade

The Mount Kisco Fire Department Ancients Fife & Drum Corps recently marched in the Yorktown Fire Department parade and won Best Junior Band. The Fife & Drum Corps had to overcome the elements as heavy rain began to fall after the start of the parade leading to a broken drum. The heavy rain caused an additional problem with the band’s uniform as their three-cornered hats kept filling up with rainwater. Drum Major Katie Tipa, however, called out a new marching step calling for the band to “dip” to tilt their hats and empty the water.

The Fife & Drum Corps has a few additional summer parades but are preparing for the Mount Kisco Fire Department parade which will kick off at approximately 7:00 on Friday, July 8. Hopefully, there will be a good turnout in Mount Kisco.
