Sun Prairie Fire Truck Parade


One of our favorite family traditions is going downtown Sun Prairie for the Sun Prairie Fire Department Fire Truck Parade and Tree Lighting.  The night started with holiday dancing (Fusion Dance) and musical performances by the Sun Prairie Community Band and Chorus, and they were even volunteers handing out cookies!  The Grinch made appearance in the Fire Truck Parade (Top Left Photo), but that didn’t stop the parade as it went off without any glitches. The parade showcased Fire Trucks from Marshall, Cottage Grove, Sun Prairie, Stoughton, and a few private fire engines owned by enthusiasts.  After the parade, Santa arrived in Sun Prairie’s new Ladder 1 Truck and lit the Christmas tree!

If you didn’t get a chance to go this year we strongly recommend you put it on your calendar of must do things for next year’s holidays.

Military (Active, Retired, Guard)

As a military veteran and past volunteer firefighter we are proud to be your local affiliate with Homes for Heroes Program and to reward those who serve our communities and our nation.  The Homes for Heroes Program rewards local Heroes by giving them significant savings  when they buy or sell a home.

To date, we John Reuter (The Reuter Team) has helped Heroes in Wisconsin save over $225,000 and have donated more than $50,000 to Help Heroes in need of financial assistance or that need home modifications through the Homes for Heroes Foundation.

So how exactly does a Hero save?   Heroes save when they buy or sell a home.  We have negotiated with local lenders, title companies, home inspectors, radon mitigation companies, and other local companies all to offer discounts to Heroes.  All Heroes need to do to get started is contact John Reuter at 608-669-4226 or e-mail

Their are no fees, contracts, or red tape with program.
