Do you have a child who loves the fire station, fire trucks, and fire fighters? Have you thought about having his/her birthday party at a fire station?
My son had his third birthday party at the Bellaire Fire Station, and it was one of our favorite parties. There was no fee for the party so I gave the station a donation. I also put together a basket of sweets, fruit and vegetables for the fire fighters.
The party was one of the easiest parties to plan. I called the station to book the event. We showed up at the station a few minutes before the party, and we had a blast. I didn't feel the need to go all out on decorations so that cut out a lot of preparation time. I purchased and provided fire hats for the kids.
The firemen gave us a tour. We toured the fire trucks, the ambulance, and the police car. The kids were able to see a fire fighter dress up in his gear, drive the wheel, climb on the truck, spray the water hose, climb into an ambulance, climb into the police car, and much more.
After the tour, we walked to the park across the street from the fire station. We enjoyed cupcakes, the kids played, and we had a piñata.
