The benefit of being part of a small town is the close-knit relationship formed between the citizens and the first responders who care for them. We find events such as the annual 4th of July Parade and Picnic as well as the Santa Meet and Greet, are wonderful ways for us to connect with our residents.
Line-up starts at 9:00 on Simmons and Oak Trail (North entrance)
Parade starts at 9:30 and will course down Cross Timbers Drive arriving at John B. Wright Park.
Walkers and horses are welcome this year. Horses must have someone on the ground to pick up droppings.
Horse trailer parking will be available at Brawley Farms.
10:00-2:00 at John B. Wright Park
We will have an auction this year, but as many retailers are still recovering from losses due to COVID-19, we will not be actively soliciting for donations for the auction. All those who donate will be acknowledged both on our webpage at www.DOVFD.org and on a banner at the event. Allocations are as follows: $500+ Chief, $250-$499- Captain, & $100-$249- Lieutenant, and below $100- Firefighter. Additionally, those who provide cash donations (sponsorship) will be recognized via signs on the event grounds. We would appreciate any assistance your company could provide. For more information please contact Chief Heimerdinger at Chief552@dovfd.org.
