This is about the biggest party of the year and there is always plenty of food, drinks, fun and entertainment.

The day begins with a church service in the firehouse and attendees are greeted by the early morning air and the smell of brats, hamburgers and chicken frying on the grill.

When the Sunday service has been completed the KNX Band started to heat up the spectators with their invigorating country music. If it’s not country you’re interested in, just stop by the dance hall in Laack’s and listen to the polkas, waltzes and big band music of the Carl Laack Band.

Jody Nielson (middle right) EMT, Flight Paramedic, explained items in the cockpit of the Flight for Life helicopter to Henry Zimbal, 4. The afternoon was finished off with the antics of Copper Box and when the Flight For Life helicopter landed there was a rush of feet to check out the fastest way to survival should it be necessary.

This event is held for a number of reasons, one of which being as a fundraiser for the Johnsonville Fire Department. The proceeds are used to help the firefighters purchase needed equipment and training.

The department says thank you to the community and we the community say thank you for giving us such a wonderful day of fun and entertainment.
