Grandstand events for 2019

Fire Department Water Fight
This isn't your average game of tug of war! Putting a new spin on the old-fashioned game, firefighters challenge other firefighters from around the area in a contest of skill and teamwork. The brawny heroes use pumper trucks and fire hoses to move a barrel closer to the opposing team. The winner is the team able to push the barrel across the line.
Registration will start at 6:30 pm and the event will start at 7:00 pm.
Free admission to spectators!
Please call Brian Payne for more information at 320-808-6676
