Fire Fighter's Family Day
presented by Glasstown Antigue Fire Brigade,
South Jersey Chapter of SPAAMFAA
Sunday, August 15, 2010 10am to 4pm
Rain or Shine
Admission is FREE to the show!
One of the largest events of its kind, the day will feature more than 80 antique fire trucks from as far away as Virginia and Connecticut.
Featured trucks include models dating back to the Revolutionary War era, as well as a Ward LaFrance once used by Trenton Psychiatric Hospital.
Other antique firefighting apparatus and memorabilia will
also be on display.
A highlight of the event will be a firefighter competition where children of all ages can witness firsthand how firefighters use their training and skills to battle fires.
The friendly competition includes a water barrel fight, where a barrel is suspended on a cable and the two opposing teams try to move it to opposite ends using a high-pressure fire hose, and bucket brigade, where each team is timed as they carry water in buckets to the roof of a small building.
Several firefighting demonstrations will also take place, including active pumping displays of fire hoses on numerous fire trucks.
The 30th Annual Antique Fire Apparatus Show, Muster and Fire Fighter's Family Day is hosted by the 100-member Glasstown Antique Fire Brigade, the South Jersey chapter of the Society for the Preservation and Appreciation of Antique Motor Fire Apparatus in America (SPAAMFAA).
Free admission to the show only. To visit WheatonArts: $10 adults, $9 senior adults and $7
