The Friendship Veterans Fire Engine Association will hold its annual Friendship Firehouse Festival on Saturday, August 6, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. This popular family event will take place in the 100 block of South Alfred Street between Prince and King Streets, which will be closed off to traffic for the festival. Admission is free!
Held at the historic Friendship Firehouse, the festival celebrates the special role firefighters have played throughout history, especially those of Friendship. The event will feature a collection of antique fire equipment and a display of modern fire trucks and apparatus courtesy of the Alexandria Fire Department. Children will enjoy “driving” these big rigs and each child attending will receive a free fire helmet! This year, the City of Alexandria Fire Department is celebrating its 150th anniversary! Other attractions include craft booths, community information tables, and the Rocklands Barbeque and Grilling Company food truck. Free birthday cake will be served at 11 a.m.
