On Saturday, April 28, 2018, you will get that golden opportunity to visit one of The Dalles’ very own events featuring local firefighters and regional antique fire collectors during the Cherry Festival.  The event is being held at The Dalles Fire Museum in the downtown corridor located at 313 Court Avenue, The Dalles, Oregon from 0900 to 1500 hours.

The the location of the Fire Museum is where it all started for this City’s firefighters and fire apparatus.
