Annual Truck Pull
Starting at 4pm, spectators can enjoy watching their neighbors and Florida firefighters attempt to pull a full-size fire truck down Palmetto Avenue. Competing in groups of ten, the winning team will receive a stunning trophy and, most importantly, bragging rights! Presented by Sanfording Event Production Group of West End Trading Co., Celery City Craft, Historic Downtown Sanford® and Ladies 327, this local tradition provides a fun physical challenge while supporting a great cause. All contestant fees will be donated to the Special Needs Advocacy Program.
