Old Sturbridge Village's Fire & Ice Day on July 19 is an old-fashioned fireman's muster featuring antique fire engines, pumping contests and bucket brigade competitions.

STURBRIDGE -- To celebrate its "Fire & Ice" old-fashioned fireman's muster on Saturday, July 19, Old Sturbridge Village is offering half-price admission for all firefighters, and free admission to children age 17 and under when accompanied by an adult paying full price.

Antique fire engines, including a variety of early hand-pumpers and a rare 1925 Stutz fire truck will be on display and will take part in a parade around the OSV Common. Visitors can join in bucket brigades and pumping contests, watch vintage ice-cream making, and help judge the Best Chili in History Contest, with entries from area restaurants. Junior Firefighters and Fire Explorer Scouts will compete in the only sanctioned fire muster for them in the northeast.

Food historians will demonstrate 18th- and 19th-century ice cream making.
