Fifteenth annual High Prairie Firehouse Sale this weekend


The High Prairie Community will hold its 15th Annual High Prairie Firehouse Sale this coming weekend. Starting May 16, and running through May 18. This widely anticipated spring event combines a giant rummage and plant sale, food concession, silent auction, quilt raffle, kids’ activities, live music, and more. Hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday.

For the first time, the Firehouse Sale will be held at the High Prairie Community Center, 701 Struck Road, just off Centerville Highway. The new site is just half a mile west of the sale’s previous address.

The Community Center’s indoor space is perfect for showcasing silent auction offerings and for displaying this year’s raffle quilt. The Center’s kitchen will make serving food much simpler – including Myrin’s famous bratwurst and corn on the cob – and the grounds around the building provide plenty of room for the rest of the sale’s familiar features.

“We’re starting with ‘Earlybird Friday’ – basically sales and the food booth,” explains new Firehouse Sale Chairperson, Rocky Schultz. “We’ll bring out more stuff for the ‘Main Event’ on Saturday, and that’s when we’ll have live music, face painting and games for kids, and all the extras. Sunday we’re calling ‘Super Sale Sunday,’ and most of what’s left will be half-price.”

The sale is High Prairie’s main fundraising event of the year. Proceeds support the High Prairie Fire District 14, the High Prairie Community Center, and the High Prairie Community Council.
