Two vintage fire apparatus arrived at Kingsville’s South Station Fire Hall in advance of Kingsville’s Fire Fest Celebration.

The rigs are part of the 20+ convoy that will begin at Kingsville’s North Fire Station in Cottam, with a slow roll to Downtown Kingsville on Saturday, September 4th, 2021.

“We’re really excited to introduce the history, to tell a story about the development of the fire department, and the development of fire vehicles, and celebrating what it means to our community and to our region,” said Mayor Nelson Santos.

This is Kingsville’s first Fire Fest Celebration. It begins at 8:00am with a pancake breakfast at Ridgeview Park Pavilion in Cottam, hosted by the North Fire station. At 11:00am, the convoy will leave Cottam for Downtown Kingsville and slow roll to Main Street. Once on Main Street, the vehicles will park until 3:00 pm to allow people an up-close view of the rigs.

“It’s a pleasure for me being the fire chief at this time and being here for this great event on this Saturday,” said Fire Chief John Quennell.
