The Friendship Firehouse Festival is back next month in Old Town

Live music, antique fire engines, craft booths and more will be on-hand on Saturday, August 6, at the annual Friendship Firehouse Festival in Old Town.

The free event will be held at the firehouse (107 S. Alfred Street) from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and guests will be able to view the renovated Prettyman Hose Carriage, which dates back to 1858, and the Rodgers Suction Engine (1851).

The Friendship Fire Company was formed in 1774, making it one of the oldest fire companies in the U.S. The Company moved to its location in 1851, and the building was constructed in 1855. The firehouse is now a museum focusing on fire-fighting history and safety, and conducts numerous events annually.

Kids will also get plastic fire helmets at the event.
