72nd FIREMEN'S FESTIVAL
FUN, FOOD & GAMESGrafton – The 2008 Grafton Firemen’s Festival is well under way with great events left for tonight, Sunday and Monday.
The Grafton Firemen's Festival has been an annual event since 1936. It raises funds to help support the operations & equipment of the Grafton Village Fire Department.
Friday night was the first ever laser light show for the festival with another show scheduled tonight at 10:00PM.
PATCHES, Wellington Fire District’s own mascot, was on hand today posing for pictures with kids. Patches took advantage of the time with the kids to inform them and their parents to make sure they had smoke detectors, with working batteries, in their homes.
The Lorain County Sheriff’s Department was also talking to kids passing out free bike locks and showing off their Bomb Robot.
Plenty of rides and games for the kids this year. The above ride is what I call “How Long Before I Throw Up Ride”. Saturday there will be a Kids Matinee and FREE Bike Drawing @ 5:00PM. The Firemen’s Water Fight will run between 1 and 3 PM, something you will not want to miss.
