I returned home after church last week to find this:
I didn’t know what was going on, so I quickly parked, grabbed my bike and camera and headed out to see what was up.
Turns out that it was a once a year training that happens in the Furano area for all the fire fighters.
Fire fighters from the 5 towns/cities in the area turned out.
Even the mayor came.
What surprised me most, is that many of the men in the area are volunteer firefighters so they were out doing the training. Many of the people in the neighborhood came to watch the events.
It was a fun chance to see people from around town and to see some of my students.
