We begin with parades and celebrations for Independence Day popping up across our region. The 99th Annual Fireman’s Fair took place in Osceola Mills on Saturday.
Fire and EMS Stations from Centre County and the surrounding area sent their Tankers and Trucks to be judged at the event, which was hosted by the Columbia Volunteer Fire Company. After last year’s event was cancelled, the Organization’s Vice President says the support this year made up for it. Trevor Harris, Vice-President of Columbia VFC saying: “With COVID last year, we took a huge hit, crowds weren’t the same, turnouts weren’t the same, but this year, it was an amazing year, everybody came out, everyone wanted to come out and be with their families and support the fire department, and we really loved all the support we get from them.”
This event concludes a week of 4th of July Celebrations throughout the area which began last weekend with a Car Show.
