Atlanta Fire Station #19 is an icon in the Virginia-Highland neighborhood. Dating back to 1925, it’s the oldest continuously operated fire station in the city. The Virginia-Highland Civic Association is taking the lead in renovating the station in partnership with the City of Atlanta, the Atlanta Fire and Rescue Department, and Surber Barber Choate + Hertlein Architects. Firefest in the Park is a community event to help raise the needed dollars to preserve this beloved community treasure.
Marco’s Pizza, recently opened on N. Highland near Greenwood, is partnering with the Virginia-Highland Civic Association to throw a party for us all, which will feature great food, entertainment, and activities involving the crew at Fire Station #19. The event will include:
- Free Slices of Pizza
- Firefighter Challenges, including a Dunk Tank!
- Fire Truck Display
- Caricaturists and Balloon Artists
- Live Music
- Enter to Win Free Pizza for Five Years
In addition, there will be a pizza eating contest between Atlanta Firefighters and our Zone 6 police officers – come show your support and cheer on all competitors! Google Fiber is another partner host, and will provide a face painter and complimentary water.
We hope to see everyone at the park next Saturday to enjoy a fun afternoon and raise as much money as we can for the Fire Station #19 restoration project.
