The Annual Firefighter Bucket Brigade at the Vintage Festival is a time honored tradition that is taken not so seriously, but with a lot of dedication and brings forth some serious competition. Due to the drought the event has transformed into a fun and challenging “bucket brigade” team challenge. Our competitors must work together in a bucket brigade to transfer a set amount of water from one container to another spilling as little as possible. During the battle the audience cheers on their favorite team and has a lot of Sonoma fun!
How does the bucket brigade work?
- Two teams of firefighters will each have to transfer a set amount of water from one barrel to another using buckets.
- The referee will determine which team transfers their water the fastest.
- This is repeated until we get down to the two remaining teams who then compete in the final round resulting in the winner.
During this battle the audience cheers on their favorite team, makes a point to get wet and have a lot of Sonoma fun! If gettting wet isn’t your cup of tea you can watch safely from a distance or partake in some of the other fabulous events happening at the festival.
