Join the Houston Fire Museum and the Houston Fire Department as we host Fire Fest 2010 on Saturday, October 9th. The event is FREE and celebrates National Fire Prevention Week. This family-oriented event's goal is to promote awareness about fire safety and fire prevention practices in a fun setting with real firefighters. The day kicks off at 10:00 am with a parade of new and antique fire trucks. Activities include an apparatus show and demonstrations, giant Kid's Zone, firefighting demonstrations every hour, Texas' Largest Firefighter Cook Off, food, music, and real fun all day long.
The annual event, a Houston tradition for more than twenty years, is held at the Houston Fire Department Val Jahnke Training Facility on the south side of Hobby Airport. A public lot with free shuttle buses operates from 9:45 am to 5:30 pm at 9300 Monroe Road, at the corner of Meldrum Road, just a three minute ride from the event.
