The brave men and women of Toms River Volunteer Fire Company No.1 are celebrating this Summer with an anniversary party and they want you to be a part of the fun. It's the 125th Anniversary Parade and Robbins Street Block Party celebrating the Fire Department and this milestone.

The fun happens Saturday, June 12th. The Parade begins at 10 am and will finish with a fun block party on Robbins Street in Downtown Toms River between Washington Street and Wilsey Way from 10 am to 5 pm. The block party will feature BBQ-style food, adult & child beverages, 125th memorabilia for sale, live music, craft vendors, emergency services display tables, and more.

Contact the Fire Department for "sponsorship" opportunities and if you would like to be part of the celebratory parade.
