The 51st Annual Fireman’s Fiesta will take place Saturday from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Fireman’s Training Center. Normally held as a dine-in steak and sausage dinner with a drawing and auction, this year’s event will only feature a drive-thru fish fry due to COVID-19 restrictions on gatherings.
Brenham Fire Department President Billy Ruemke said the department typically uses proceeds from the event to purchase equipment for firefighters. This year, however, proceeds and donations will go toward renovations at the Fireman’s Training Center, which has served as an event venue and emergency shelter since it was built in 1984.
Tickets are $15 for a plate of fried fish, potato salad, and coleslaw. They can be purchased at the Brenham fire station, from members of the fire department, and at Robert’s Service Station, K&M Grocery, or Dan’s Meat Market. Tickets can be purchased up until serving begins.
KTEX-106’s Trail Boss Troy and Holly Ryder will be at the Fireman’s Training Center Saturday evening, broadcasting live from the friendly country cruiser.
