The city will be hot to trot on May 13, and county’s firefighters will be there to ensure everyone is having a good time.
The Churchill County Volunteer Fire Department, along with the federal fire department at Naval Air Station Fallon, is hosting a street fare on Carson Street, said firefighter Chris Henning.
A dance, which is free and open to the public, will be held on North Carson Street. Henning said families are welcome, and he hopes for a big turnout from the area’s residents and visitors.
“We want the entire city and county to hang out with us,” Henning said.
The dance and other activities are planned 5-9 p.m.
“We want to have fun but get everyone home at a reasonable time,” he said.
Disc jockey Todd Moretto will provide the music, and the firefighters will serve the food. Henning said a tri-tip sandwich with chips and a pickle will cost $10, and a hot dog, chips and pickle is $5. In addition to soft drinks, Henning said the fire department will serve alcohol. Henning said the firefighters from the air station will bring their ice cream machine and their fire training trailer.
“We’ll have fire truck rides and free games like cornhole and Jenga,” Henning added,
Besides the Friday night fun, Henning said the fire department is having a raffle with each ticket costing $20. The raffle prizes are a Colt AR15 5.56 mm with 500 rounds of ammunition; a Glock 19 gen 9 mm with 250 rounds of ammunition; and a Ruger Wrangler .22lr SA revolver with 100 rounds of ammunition.
Henning said firefighters are selling the raffle tickets or they may be purchased at the fire department on 20 N. Carson St. He said the food sales and raffle are both fundraisers for the fire department.
