Firefighters in Ascension Parish will get their own day of appreciation this weekend.
Over 1 thousand people are expected to come out tomorrow at the Lamar Dixon expo center for the celebration.
9 different fire houses will be honored for the first time in parish history.
The event was totally paid for by contributions from the people of the community.
From the food to the entertainment, the entire goal is to pay tribute to those who put their community’s safety, first.
