The Sylvan Lake Fire Department hosted its annual Open House for Fire Prevention this past weekend.

On Oct. 19 the Fire Hall was filled with kids and parents who enjoyed the bounce houses, pizza, coffee and checking out the fire trucks.

Sparky showed up as the special guest to pose for photos and even take his turn on the inflatable slide.

The event also saw door prizes and plastic hats available for the little ones.
