When the day is done, and prizes won,
'tis time for all to part.

Having won their share, both fair and square,
they leave with a gladdened heart!




The Aurora Regional Fire Museum and Handtub Junction thank all who attended
the Great Midwestern Handtub Exposition and Competition.
Ten engines from six states
pumped during the competition making it the largest recorded gathering of handtubs in Illinois.


Pictures of the day have been posted in our
Handtub Expo Photo Galleries


...And for those that missed them, commemorative buttons, ribbons and
souvenir program books are avaliable in our “
Hose Tower Gift Shop
