The 17th Annual Great Neck Antique Fire Apparatus Show and Muster is coming soon! The muster, hosted by the Great Neck Alert Fire Company and the Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Company, is set for Saturday, June 26, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the United States Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point.
Always a spectacular event, this fun day is much anticipated by the entire family, from the smallest children to parents and grandparents. Over 40 antique fire trucks are expected to be on display. These beautiful, shiny red trucks are a delight to see and are sure to draw a large crowd as ever.
Firefighter and junior firefighter competitions will be going on throughout the day. The competitions are exciting and it is a great treat to sit on the sidelines and watch what these dedicated volunteers can do. Each firefighter and junior firefighter is just amazing!
The food, cooked by “master” firefighter chefs, is right off the barbecue, hot and delicious. The backdrop of the Merchant Marine Academy and its magnificent waterfront view is a treat in itself. The games are fun to watch, the impressive display of fire equipment a special gift to all, and the large group of assembled fire company families offer a warm welcome.
Admission is free and this is a really fun day! So join our local volunteer firefighters in a very special day for the 17th Annual Great Neck Antique Fire Apparatus Show and Muster on Saturday, June 26.
