FREE Fire Truck RIDES included
CHILDREN’S BIRTHDAY PARTIES – (AGES 3-7) **
- Birthday parties are booked at 10am to 12n and 1pm to 3pm. You may arrive to setup at 9:30am for our 10am birthdays and at 12:30pm for our 1pm birthdays.
- A 20 minute fire safety and history tour by one of our docents geared for younger kids starts your event with Stop, Drop and Roll; a bucket brigade and history of fire service.
- Playtime in the museum includes pretend reenactment of a real fire call – take the emergency call at our switchboard, then slide down the pole; put on the (real life) gear and hop into one of our two simulator tiller cabs with response videos or play on our ladder truck device simulator.
- For those with a love for the railroad not only can you frequently see real life trains go by on the nearby train tracks, but we have a train table and train mats for indoor play.
- Your birthday party includes several octagonal tables (seating 8 each), 3 rectangle tables for food and drink (tablecloth provided), 4 rectangle tables for eating (tablecloth provided) and plastic fire hats for all children attendees.
- While there is a small kitchen we have limited refrigerator, freezer and counter space and a small microwave. We encourage you to take that into consideration when planning your food and drink for the event. Coolers are acceptable. Please inquire about small appliance usage as that must be approved by our staff. Catered food is welcome!
- Please view our Catering page under Hall Rental and feel free to check out our Catering Partners page too.
