The Fire Museum of Maryland will host its 35th Annual Steam Show on Saturday, May 5th, 2012 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
The show features Dalmatians and draft horses, demonstrations of late-1800s horse-drawn fire engines, and rides in an 1899 hose wagon. Other fun includes firefighting contests for the kids, steam engine models and a magician performing inside.
Children and adults can learn about the history of the fire service and see how fire engines operated in the late 1800s. Steam fire engine demonstrations, horse-drawn carriages and rides in a 1890s hose wagon are featured, as well as contests for the kids. Try operating the 1853 hand-pumped fire “enjine.” Then, cool off with a run under a 65-foot water tower.
The Fire Museum is located one block north of the Baltimore Beltway, Exit 26B, at 1301 York Road in Lutherville. Ample car and tour bus parking is available.
Adults $12, Seniors and Fire Fighters $10, and Children (2-18) $5. For more information call 410-321-7500, x102, or go to www.firemuseummd.org, or write email@example.com
