Elgin VFD gets ready for annual Crawds n' Rods

Posted: Updated:

ELGIN, Okla._The Elgin Volunteer Fire Department has been getting ready for their annual Crawds n’ Rods festival coming up on Saturday.

This year marks the 11th year of the event and they've been making their final touches on the hot rod they are raffling off. This year they are selling 600 tickets at $100 each. Best of all is the cause it is going back to.

"We have a very aggressive fire prevention program. We spend about $11 a child with backpacks and literature to take home with their families. Not to mention the tools and the props we have for that year," said Fire Chief Baker.

They hope to raise $10,000 from the hot rod to go towards teaching kids about fire prevention. The event itself is free but the all-you-can-eat crawfish is $20 and to put an entry in the car show is also $20.

Registration for the car show starts at 8:00 a.m. and live music starts at 10:30 a.m.
