Prairie Township residents are gearing up for an annual celebration that has been going on for decades.

From 11a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, June 23 and Saturday, June 24 the 68th annual Prairie Township Firefighter’s Association Fish Fry will take place. This annual event features live music, carnival games, amusement rides and fresh ocean perch.

“Residents look forward to this every year,” said Prairie Township Fire Chief Chris Snyder. “Each year, we fry up approximately 2,000 pounds of ocean perch and people sit down and catch up.”

All the proceeds from the fish fry go to the Prairie Township Firefighter’s Association and are used for equipment, training and other materials needed by the township’s firefighters.
During the event, the firefighters also will be hosting the 18th annual Firefighter’s Cruise-In. Taking place the evening of Friday, June 23, the cruise-in will feature classic cars. The first 100 registered cars will receive a free dash plaque and 50 award trophies will be given out.

According the firefighter’s association, all years, makes and models are welcomed and the entry fee is $10.
