Pmpers and Pistons
(Photos courtesy Ron Anderson)
One of our newest but most popular events is the Pumpers and Pistons event that features fire trucks - both active and antique - as well as antique trucks and displays by first responders. Last year's inaugural event happened in October, and this year, the event moved to the first Sunday in May.
With some 53 participating vehicles, including active units from as far away as Lincoln County as well as displays by the St. Louis County Police and Missouri State Highway Patrol, this year's event was a great success. We are extremely grateful to everyone who participated, including the many fire departments, police and highway patrol units, and the event sponsors, the Gateway Fire Historical Society and the Gateway Chapter of the Antique Truck Historical Society.
A crowd favorite was the Boeing Jazz Band...
And the Rubber Duck from the movie Convoy was in attendance...
