It's a must-see event for kids. Mark your calendars. Now that we've reached July, a Central New York rite of summer is right around the corner, both literally and figuratively.

The New Hartford Fire Department's Fire Truck Spectacular is coming Thursday, July 25th. All of the volunteer fire department's fire-fighting vehicles and equipment will be on display at the New Hartford Shopping Center, from 6PM-9PM, rain or shine. Other fire departments from the Mohawk Valley region also bring their vehicles to the show. Refreshments and entertainment from Shorecuts DJ service are included in the festivities.

There's no entry fee for the event, but people are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item for donation to help support the Feed Our Vets organization. More information is available on the New Hartford Fire Department Facebook page.
