This weekend was our local fire station's open house - a free community event with firetruck bouncy castles and slides, fire hydrant mini-golf and a smoke tunnel obstacle course, games and crafts and a train ride for little ones.
The firehouse was open for tours, fire trucks were set up and open to explore, and we watched the fire crew completely take apart a car in a rescue demonstration.
The kids got their own fire hats and had a chance to practice putting out fires with the fire hose.
I love living in a community with so many fun, free family activities! Check out your local town website, library notice board, and signs at the community centres - you'd be astonished to find out how many organized activities are available in your own community!
