This year’s event will offer a full day of activities sure to please the entire family starting out the day with free children’s activities including Bubble Bounce Inflatables, Pony Rides by Mellow Meadows Equestrian, Face Painting, a Children’s Firefighter Challenge and a Little Ray’s Reptiles Interactive Show. There will be a BBQ run by the Schneiders / Foodland Community Cruiser and a beer garden starting at 12:00pm.
Invitations have been sent to all neighbouring fire departments in SD&G and surrounding area inviting firefighters to go head to head in a test of skill, endurance and teamwork as they make their way through a skills course. The challenge is meant to simulate the first couple of minutes of a fire and will include such demonstrations as forcible entry, hose pulls, victim drag, ladder climbing and more. Families are encouraged to attend the event and cheer on their fire department. Back again for a second year is the Youth Challenge which will follow the Firefighters..
“This is our 11th year having this great community event, we were thrilled with the community support the past couple of years and every year we seem to grow bigger. The Ingleside Firefighters’ Association plan this event as a way to give back to our supportive community, and along with numerous local sponsors, make this event better every year. The mandate of the organizers is to make the event as free or low cost as we can so everyone can enjoy.” Stacy Charlebois – event Chairperson.
Ingleside will be rocking with live entertainment from 4:00pm to 1am featuring Alex and Ethan MacIsaac, Quitter, Mena Hardy and Kilts, Riffs and Spurs.
The 11th Annual Ingleside Firefighter Challenge is scheduled for Saturday, July 15th in front of the Ingleside Shopping Plaza.
