Come on out for a day of fun!

During the firefighter games, our volunteer firefighters compete in various activities that highlight many of the skills they use on a regular basis as the protect and serve the community. As if that’s not enough awesomeness…we also have them compete in a firehouse-chili face-off!

The winner earns a cash prize along with the coveted Thor’s Hammer trophy which they keep for the year until it’s up for grabs in next year’s competition.

Events and Attractions of the Day Include:   

  • Chili & Games Competitions (of course!)
  • Live Music
  • Bounce houses and obstacle course
  • Firetruck Row – see the equipment up close, check out the gear and get photos.
  • Cake Walks – if you’ve never done one, you need to try! Musical chairs, but with cake!
  • Beer and Wine for the over 21’s to enjoy
  • Hot dogs, Sno-Cones, Cotton Candy and other treats to sample
  • Thor’s Hammer Commemorative Tee shirts for sale
  • Advance Sale tickets are available online HERE
  • Event developments and community news on Facebook
Our goal is to raise awareness, encourage new volunteers to join, build camaraderie and to raise funds.
Most people don’t realize that a single set of turn-out gear to outfit one fireman costs over $10,000 from boots to helmet. For small rural departments, this is a staggering cost, but it’s light compared to the cost of the trucks themselves which easily top $500,000.
The Thor’s Hammer event is underwritten by sponsors so all ticket sales and prize money can go to help our VFD’s.
We hope you’ll join us for this memorable, family-friendly and fun day!

Thor’s Hammer is a certified non-profit organization with a mission
