Friendship Firehouse Festival 2017 (Photos)

The Friendship Veterans Fire Engine Association held its annual Friendship Firehouse Festival on Saturday, August 5, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. This popular family event took place at the Friendship Fire Company Museum in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia.

The festival celebrates the special role firefighters have played throughout history, especially those of Friendship. The event featured a collection of antique fire equipment and a display of modern fire trucks and apparatus courtesy of the Alexandria Fire Department. Children enjoy “driving” these big rigs and each child attending received a free fire helmet! Other attractions included craft booths, community information tables, and a food truck.
