[ARCHIVED] Retired Westmont Fire Personnel to be Honored at Fire Truck Night on August 9


Village of Westmont

Date Issued: Aug. 6, 2018

“Over the years, our Fire Truck Night has continued to get bigger and better,” says Fire Chief David Weiss. “This year is the Fire Department’s 95th Anniversary so we are going to make it even more special.”

On Thursday, August 9, Westmont Special Events and the Westmont Fire Department will co-host the Westmont Street Fair and Cruisin’ Nights Fire Truck Night. The event will be held on Cass Avenue in downtown Westmont from 5 to 9 p.m. and will include many activities for families including a bounce house, fire pole slide, obstacle course, tours of the various fire department vehicles, visits with Sparky the Fire Dog and Freddy the Fire Truck, as well as for kids to dress up in fire fighting gear.

“Another highlight this year will be a float that will feature some of our retired firefighters,” said Village Trustee Linda Liddle, who is helping with the Fire Truck Night Parade and float coordination.  The Fire Truck Parade and float will take place on Cass Avenue at the end of the night around 9 p.m.

As always, classic cars of all makes and models are invited each week and can sign up for free drawings. “Our goal is to bring families and visitors to downtown Westmont to enjoy all it has to offer,” said Westmont Special Events President Sam Alonzo.  “We hope that when people come to the event, they stop and shop at our downtown businesses.”
