VWS Open Day 2018

. 15th November 2018

The VWS Open Day was on fire! Excuse the puns, but this was one hot event. Hundreds of people of all ages came by for the family fun day and plenty of “Fun Raising” was done to support the Volunteer Wildfire Services before going into the height of fire season.

The Magic Family was there to join in on the fun, and we decided to bring our sound system to the party. Guy McDonald was so impressed by the Volunteer Wildfire Services, he even considered signing up for a second. But only for a second. When he was put through a trial by fire with the other new VWS recruits he soon thought better of it. Which is all well and good, because we think he looks much better in Magic red than VWS yellow.

The rest of the day blazed by us, as we cranked up the heat with the Magic “flare” and music. It was a good thing we brought all that free Cape Aqua along, and the kids were thankful as well.

Check out how fired-up every one was at the VWS Open Day 2018

The VWS’ Nuweberg Trail Challenge has come and gone, and while Summer is still warming up, the men & women of the VWS are gearing up for their biggest, coolest event of the year.

The Volunteer Wildfire Services Open Day 2018 is a fun-filled family day held to raise awareness of what they do to combat wildfires, before going into the height of fire season.
