The City of Bushnell held another community event with a Movie in the Park on March 14th, showing the Disney movie "Planes - Fire and Rescue". Along with the movie, our local hero's from the Sumter Sheriffâ€™s Office, Sumter Fire Services and the Withlacoochee Forestry Center came and supported the movie event.
A special thank you from the City of Bushnell goes out to all of the agencies who took the time to make the evening a success; Thank you to the Withlacoochee Forestry Center for bringing Smokey the Bear, Fire Buster the Clown, and the forestry vehicles that transformed into character for the event. Smokey was a hit with the kids for pictures and Fire Buster made kids smile with the special balloon animals.
The Sumter County Sheriff's Office brought out the SWAT vehicle for the kids to explore. One lucky little girl was even able to turn on the emergency lights.
Sumter Fire Rescue brought Sparky the Fire Dog, their beautiful Fire Engine and water tender truck. Sparky was a hit with the kids for pictures and they even let the kids hold and shoot the fire hose while knocking down the cones with water, what a hit that was!
The parents of the Dixie Youth Baseball team did a great job on the food concession as well as, bringing in the delicious kettle corn made by Bret Spaude and his wife.
Thank you to the community for all of your continued support and we look forward to seeing you all at the next event!
