Firefighters’ Ball to ignite fun in Craig on Saturday

Craig Fire/Rescue will host the 76th annual Firefighters' Ball and Hawaiian Luau on Saturday night at the O.P. Bar and Grill, 534 E. Victory Way.

The tropical themed festivities begin at 6 p.m. and last until midnight. Attendees are encouraged to wear their most aloha-worthy attire as part of a costume contest, be it a floral shirt and shorts or a grass skirt and coconut brazier. Attractions include music, food, drinks and a limbo contest.

Battalion Chief Steve Lingo said he has been involved with the event for 16 years and it is always great to see people come out and interact with the firefighters.

Tickets are $10 apiece for the luau, which is ages 21 and older, and can be purchased from any Craig firefighter or at the fire station at 419 Yampa Ave. All of the proceeds go to the Craig Fire/Rescue scholarship fund.

The firefighters hope to raise around $2,500 for their scholarship fund this year through ticket sales and donations, Lingo said.
