The Silver City Fireman’s Ball will be held on July 27 at the park in Silver City from 2 to 10 p.m.
Celebrating the Silver City Volunteer Fire Department’s 150th anniversary, the volunteer fire department in Silver City was established in 1863, one year before Nevada became a state, during the era of the great Comstock Lode.
This once sprawling little city was rich in silver ore and boasted a population of over 1200 residents. 150 years later, this small town and its volunteer fire department are still rich in tradition and community spirit.
Come check out this historic town and enjoy a day of family fun and celebration on Saturday July 27, 2013. Silver City is located just 4 miles south of Virginia City on State Route 341/342. Live music starts at 2pm with Whitney Myer headlining the show around 8pm.
There will be a kidz midway with games and prizes, photos with the antique fire engine, raffle, food, beverages, commemorative memorabilia and much more.
Free admission – fun starts at 2pm and goes to 10pm
