HOLT, Fla., Dec. 2, 2017–The Holt Fire District hosted it’s annual Kid’s Day activities at the fire station today.
Kids Day happens the first Saturday in December each year.
Free to the public, this year’s attractions included bounce houses with slide and basketball hoop, face painting and crafts.
New this year was an inflatable fire education house complete with simulated smoke designed to teach children how to safely escape a house fire.
Also new, the Choctawhatchee Electric Cooperative presented it’s Live Line Safety Demonstration to show how dangerous live wires can be.
The station’s fire trucks and Okaloosa County’s emergency medical service ambulance were also on display.
Sparky the Fire Dog and the Florida Forest Service’s Smokey Bear were on hand to meet the kids, shake hands and pose for pictures.
Santa Claus stopped by from up north for photos and to take Christmas requests back to the North Pole. Each child left with a present from Santa.
As the activities wrapped up, Holt Fire prepared their engines to participate in Crestview’s annual Christmas parade later that evening.
