Kingsville Hosts Fire Fest Celebration on Saturday, September 4, 2021

Posted On Wednesday July 28, 2021

The Town of Kingsville is excited to present its first Kingsville Fire Fest Celebration on Saturday, September 4, 2021. Fire Fest starts at 8:00 am with a pancake breakfast at Cottam Ridgeview Park Pavilion, hosted by the Department's North Station. At 11:00 am, new and antique fire trucks will make their way from Victoria Street to County Road 34 down County Road 29 (Division Road North) to Main Street Kingsville, where vehicles will remain parked until 3:00 pm for people to take a closer look at the vintage fire apparatus and snap some classic pictures.

"This community has always demonstrated a great deal of respect for its front-line workers," says Fire Chief John Quennell. "I'm constantly blown away by the hardworking, courageous and passionate men and women that serve on our Kingsville Fire Department, and Fire Fest gives the public the chance to come out and show their support for this great group."

Kingsville Fire & Rescue will also be selling 'Friends of Kingsville Fire' T-Shirts on the Town's website. These T-shirts will be delivered right to the purchaser's home by Kingsville Fire personnel, who will stay and offer a safety check of smoke and CO alarms.  

"As we return to normal after almost eighteen months of fighting this global pandemic, we certainly have much to be grateful for when it comes to the tireless efforts of our Fire Department and other emergency service personnel," said Kingsville Mayor Nelson Santos. "We're looking forward to paying tribute to this team of frontline heroes and having some fun as a community as well."  

Kingsville's Downtown corridor will close at 11:00 am to accommodate the arrival of the slow roll of the fire truck apparatus. The roads will remain closed for Open Streets, which happens each Saturday through the summer from 4:00 pm – 10:30 pm.
