Hundreds of Fire Engines - New and Old - at the Fire Truck Showcase and Rodeo.
Come on out to Millbrook High School on Friday, May 1st, to get your fill of fire engines - big and small, old and new.
In addition to seeing hundreds of all types of fire engines, you will get to see the 14th annual Fire Truck Rodeo sponsored by Keplinger Repair, and Rappahannock Electric Cooperative. Watch as firefighters drive the huge machines backward and forward through tightly-spaced cones to the tick of a stopwatch. This competition begins at 9 a.m., rain or shine, and provides firefighters the chance to demonstrate their driving skills and improve the performance of their everyday driving. Trophies are awarded for first- through fourth-place winners.
In addition to watching the rodeo, there will be a fire apparatus photographer on hand to provide free photographs of the vehicles. Come on out for the chance to see antique and brand new fire engines, aerial ladders, and specialty vehicles up close. Many of the antique vehicles are more than 100 years old. The antiques will line up and parade downtown beginning at 2 p.m. This division of the Firefighters’ Parade is sponsored by the Old Dominion Historical Fire Society.
