Upper Hutt Leader
There will be a touch of the old and the new at Upper Hutt Fire Brigade centenary celebrations this Saturday.
Vintage and modern fire trucks will leave Trentham Fire Station at 11.30am on April 5 and parade along Fergusson Drive and Main St.
Information stands and fire service mascots Flint and Amber will be on show at the car park opposite the Upper Hutt Police Station until about 3pm.
Fire fighters will also show people how to put out a small kitchen fire using a purpose-built unit.
Mike Magyar, treasurer of the Hutt Valley Fire Brigade Social Club, said about 35 people had registered for the centenary celebrations and more were expected to sign up closer to the event.
People were travelling from all over New Zealand to attend the gathering. The Upper Hutt Fire Brigade is on the hunt for stories and memorabilia for a centenary book to be published on the brigade.
