Featured by 19 performances, including dancing, guitar, diabolo juggling, nunchaku displays, allegro music and comedy double-acts, the event was warmly welcomed by all in attendance.
Aiming at enhancing connections between the army and civilians, the event also gave the opportunity for the fire department to increase understanding of its overall role in the community.
