It has become an October tradition for us to visit the Orange County Fire Authority’s Open House event. It is convenient, free, and fun, so we continue to go. We have the scheduling down to a science: arrive at least 15 minutes before the 10:00 start time so we can park in the main parking lot, head straight for the fire engine ride towards the back, collect freebies from the various booths, go to the arts and craft station, and stand in line for the free hot dog lunch (usually starts at 11:30).
For the past couple of years, Salvation Army has provided free Krispy Kreme donuts.
Thank you to all of the firefighters who put their lives on the line to keep our community safe!
