More festivities will continue from noon until 4 p.m. in the Village of East Davenport.

The family-friendly even will help visitors learn about fire safety by visiting a fire-safety house and a live-burn trailer with fire demonstrations. You can see Sparky the Fire Dog, and enjoy all of the antique fire trucks and the International Fire Museum.
