North Halifax Volunteer Fire Department was packed today and had lots of activities going on.It was their 36th annual Marathon fundraiser. The event had nothing to do with running, they call it a marathon because it's an all day event.
They had several live bands, food, games, vendors and a tractor pull. The fire chief said this is their major fundraiser to help keep the department running.
They hoped to raise $10,000.
