2015 Chicago Fire Engine Rally & Swap Meet (more highlights)

This from Steve Redick:

Saturday was the big day. The weather was kinda poor for most of the show .. little sun. Turnout was also kinda sparse. I did really enjoy the parade and what there was to see. I imagine it is a thankless and difficult job to set all this up and it is a credit to the hardworking members who selflessly put this together every year.
