Fire Headquarters will also open its doors to the public, allowing everyone to explore the different fire trucks. And Lee’s Summit Police will be out, showing off its bomb squad vehicle.

Families can take part in an array of activities throughout the day, from face painting to demonstrations of the big trucks and equipment. Parking is available in the public parking garage, located at the corner of Second Street and Green Street.
