Upcoming City Events
October 15 - Fire Department Open House | Public Safety Building | 11 am-2 PM
The Columbia Heights Fire Department will host its annual Fire Prevention Open House Oct 15 as part of Fire Prevention Week, Oct 9-15. This year’s FPW campaign “Fire Won't Wait. Plan Your Escape!” reminds everyone to establish or review escape routes from their home in the event of a fire. Knowing exactly where to go when the alarm sounds will help ensure your family makes it outside safely. This is the 100th anniversary of Fire Prevention Week! To promote fire safety, Columbia Heights Fire would like to invite you to the Public Safety Building's fire station Oct 15. Kids, young and old, can spray a real fire hose, meet dalmatians, enjoy free ice cream, watch a fire demonstration, meet local firefighters, and more!
October 29 - Truck or treat | Huset park East | 1-4 Pm
Truck or Treat returns for its fifth year Sat, Oct 29, 1-4 pm, at Huset Park East! Kids and their parents can explore a variety of vehicles, including police cars, fire trucks, tow, dump, garbage and mail trucks, and a school bus. In addition to the organizations that provide their vehicles, Columbia Heights and its City departments will also collaborate with community partners to help make the event possible. Each vehicle station will hand out candy for kids middle-school aged and younger. Recreation will host Puppet Wagon shows. Attendees are encouraged to come in costume. Pets, too! Food and beverages for sale, and free hot cider and coffee on-site while supplies last.
