The annual MDA fundraiser had previously been held at the Soldotna “Y” during the for the last 20 years on Labor Day weekend, but decided to move away from the intersection for safety reasons, Nelson said.

A ladder truck will be on display and kids can take photos on the fire truck. Firefighters will be on hand to accept donations collected in fire boots.
