After a two-year absence, the Brandy Station Volunteer Fire Department Annual Fair & Parade will return to Brandy Station this summer.
Fire Department membership recently chose to once again have this annual fundraising event and finalized a contract with a midway provider, according to a news release. The 2019 Fair will be held Aug. 7–10 with the parade happening on Thursday evening, Aug. 8.
With schools reopening in Culpeper County on Aug. 12, the fair would be an excellent opportunity to enjoy some family fun just before the kids return, the news release stated.
The Fire Department has signed a contract with RC Cole Shows Amusements from Covington to provide the midway.
RC Cole has been in business for more than 25 years and has recently hosted carnivals in Vienna, Warrenton, Orange and Arlington.
The Brandy Station Volunteer Fire Department was founded and chartered in 1951, and its auxiliary hosted the first carnival in August of that year. That responsibility was turned over to the firemen in August of 1955, according to the release.
The Fire Department has received numerous requests over the last two years to resume this traditional event.
The fair can take you down memory lane. It is a nostalgic event for “older” folks and younger ones alike.
The fair is a means to cement relationships with friends and neighbors who are kept apart by busy schedules throughout the year.
