The Corunna Volunteer Firefighters Association’s 40th Annual Field Days are set for this Friday evening and Saturday (June 9 and 10) at the Corunna Fire Hall.
The annual event is a fundraiser for the 32-member association, helping it support community groups, projects and minor sports.
The event opens Friday 7 p.m. at the fire hall, with the bands The Rapid and Jabrito performing an age 19-plus show beginning at 8 p.m.
Saturday’s, events begin at 11 a.m. with a parade down Lyndock Street, featuring special guests, from the Kids hit TV Show Paw Patrol. Marshall, Chase, Rubble and Skye will all be in attendance.
Following the parade, the fire hall opens at 11:30 a.m., with a meet and greet with the characters Marshall, Chase, Rubble and Skye from the Paw Patrol, as well as inflatables, games and a barbecue, Fire trucks will have a sprinkler ball on it, so that kids can run around and get wet playing in the water similar to a splash pad.
Along with the fun and music, the field day is an opportunity for association members to pass along information about fire prevention and safety.
Those presentations are set for 1 p.m. Saturday, and include mock rooms created to demonstrate how quickly a fire can spread, and how firefighters battle the flames, as well as shown how sprinkles operate during a fire. There will also be fire extinguisher demonstrations, and have a smoke house trailer there so children can learn about how to escape from a fire.
All Saturday activities are all free and open to the public.
The live music continues Saturday evening at 8 p.m. with the bands Down River Boys and Fake Low. That activity is also for ages 19-plus.
