Our kids love to go to Firehouse events. A chance to get up close with the trucks and all the equipment. The best part though, is meeting any and all of the firefighters. They love to meet the people who are wearing the gear and driving the big red trucks.
This coming Saturday, January 25th is Minnetonka Fire Family Fun Day. A chance to meet Minnetonka firefighters, check out their fire trucks and take a turn on their 20-foot inflatable slide! To top it all off, they’ll be serving delicious firehouse chili and hot cider.
Most of the Fire Department open houses and events we’ve attended have been in the spring or summer, so this was fun to discover one in the winter. Do you know of other Fire Department events in the off season that we could share with our readers. Maybe something in your community that you take for granted that everyone knows about?
