Red Bud Firemen’s Picnic a success

FIRST PLACE FLOAT–For the third year in a row, Roeslein’s float in the Red Bud Firemen’s Picnic Parade took first place honors. This year, there was a lot going on – in addition to a giant can pouring water, can cooler launchers and passing out cans of water, there was a rotating pig blowing bubbles. For more pictures from the parade, please see this week’s print edition.

Despite the heat, quite the crowd came out in support of this year’s Red Bud Firemen’s Picnic, making it a success.

“We had a great picnic this year,” reported Fire Chief Sean Landgraf. He added that while it was one of the hottest he has been around for, luckily when the sun went down, it felt much better outside.

Landgraf wanted to express the fire department’s gratitude to all who made the picnic possible.
