What to Expect

Members of the fire department open the hydrants and are on site. The street or parking lot is closed down and kids and families can run and play in the water. 

Plan to park about a block away from the party as the street with the open hydrant will be closed.

Sometimes there are also water balloons, popsicles, stickers, and a meet and greet with firefighters.
