The annual Fire Truck display at WAMBO will showcase much of the same features that visitors have come to love.
Lee Burrows, who has been running the Fire Truck portion of the event for 26 years, said there are not many changes this year to the event.
“We are going to have a couple of guys pumping water like we normally do,” he said.
“I got the same regular fellas coming every year. I have asked for the steamer from Chatham but I don’t know if I will be getting it or not.”
Burrows said there are generally 25-30 trucks on display, which the local youth can check out.
“They can have a tour of them and if the guys are pumping they can sometimes hold the nozzles, so they can squirt the water into the river.”
Burrows said the display will be in the same spot along Wallace Street, right next to the river by Harbour Court.
“We just hope for a good day,” he said.
“We are there Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. or 4 p.m. We are having our fire truck parade at 3 p.m. like we always do through town. Out to the nursing homes and back, because we always line up at the nursing home too so they can see it.”
Burrows added: “We just hope we have good weather.”
WAMBO 30 is taking place August 10, 11 & 12.
