Event Attractions

FIRE ENGINE PUSH

An old firefighter tradition, the fire engine push ceremony dates back to the days of horse-drawn equipment when members had to push the equipment into the bay.

TOUCH-A-FIRE-TRUCK

See our new state-of-the-art fire engine and rescue response vehicles, and let the littles see what it's like in the driver's seat.

KIDS' ZONE

Cut the kids loose in the Kiddie Korral, to craft, climb, jump, and play in our supervised kid's zone. 

FIREFIGHTER CHALLENGES

Watch our Firefighters compete to see who can hose down a target and get dressed the fastest! The current record for the fastest dresser is 27.08 seconds. Think we can beat it?

FOOD TRUCKS & VENDORS

Get a plate of the best BBQ in Briggs, served up by End of Trails BBQ. Or grab a free hotdog for your kiddo, and check out local vendors invited to attend.

 

HELICOPTER LANDINGS

Thanks to CareFlite and AirEvac, we will have two helicopters land on our new landing pad to make an appearance at our Grand Opening!
