Among the antique pieces of equipment planned to be on display will be a restored hand drawn hose cart which was pulled by firefighters when a community could not afford horses.
There will also be a 1950 mini pumper, a small truck used to get in and out of a fire quickly and a large-scale tiller truck from a collector in Urbana.
McClain said many find fire apparatus interesting because it stems from a childhood fascination with fire trucks.
The show will also coincide with a day the miniature train is running at Carillon Park. Rides will take place from 1- 4 p.m. and cost $1.
