National Firefighters Combat Challenge

The Boulder County Fair is hosting a first-time event called “Salute to First Responders” July 28th – 29th in conjunction with Longmont Fire Department. Bringing the National Firefighter Combat Challenge (FCC) to the Longmont Fairgrounds promotes and showcases the talents, skills, and athleticism of National and Colorado firefighter heroes in an exciting sports competition that travels to approximately 25 locations throughout the country. Simulating many of the skills of firefighting, climbing a five-story tower, dragging and hoisting a fire hose, racing around obstacles, man down rescue, simulating forcible entry, etc. – the FCC celebrates America’s best of the best’ firefighters. This event is free to view. There will be a Kid’s challenge area that replicates the firefighters’ challenge, no charge.

The popular ticketed events will also return to the fair, the Demolition Derby, on Saturday, August 5th, Pro Bull Riding, Friday, August 4th, Truck & Tractor Pull, Sunday, August 6th, Colorado Professional Rodeo, Sunday, July 30th and the Mexican Rodeo, Saturday, July 29th. Be sure to experience the Westernaires, Ballet on Horseback and Stunt Bikes. The Farm to Table Dinner and Craft Distillery festival also celebrate local flair. Please visit our website at www.bouldercountyfair.org for ticket information, event dates and times.

Do you want to make a difference in the community, meet new people and have fun all at the same time? Then the Boulder County Fair & Rodeo is looking for you! The fair would not be the success that it is today without the dedication and hard work of its volunteers.
