1919 Fire Truck at MN State Fair

Filed under: Our Favorite Things — Lori Williamson @ 2:54 pm

Every year we lend our 1919 Ford Model T Fire Truck to the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) for the MN State Fair Parade.  It is one of a very few vehicles that we keep maintained in running condition.  This one was the first unit used by the Minnesota Forest Service and will lead the parade on Friday this week (8/22/2014) for Fire Prevention Day.  It is a special year because Smokey Bear turns 70 this year.
