The 13th annual Sedgwick Volunteer Fire Department Car Show returns to the Blue Hill Fairgrounds on Saturday, July 12.

This rain-or-shine event is the biggest fundraiser for the all-volunteer department.

Organizer Dave Gulya said about last year’s show, “This is truly a generous effort on all parts that goes to securing the life safety equipment that we need to make an already tough job that much easier.”

Registration for this year’s show will take place from 8 a.m. to noon. Doors open to the general public from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

In addition to the car show there will also be a swap meet, a 50-50 drawing, a raffle and food concessions. The event is sponsored in part by the Blue Hill Fair Association.
