Dayton, Indiana and their Annual Fish Fry at the Sheffield Fire Department was quite the event!
This Tippecanoe County event is full of all the hometown fun you would expect: yard sales, craft booths, and even a cake auction.
Dayton, Indiana Sheffield Fire Department Fish Fry
So, I officially missed the cake auction but we did get to check out the fire trucks!
I guess I forgot how high up those fire trucks really are! Whew! I thought I would need a step stool to get into the thing. Anyway, what was neat and unique about the Fire Department Fish Fry in Dayton, Indiana is that they actually had all the trucks open with their gear lying around it–so that kids could check it out.
Well, kids and me, of course. There were jackets, boots, and hats scattered here and there. I had to try on a hat. Wow–heavy, heavy, HEAVY!

We strolled around the craft booths. I found a puzzle for Kid #1 and a cute train for Kid #2 to push around. A bargain at $1 apiece! Score!
Another vendor had bunches of bikes. Apparently there’s a hobbyist or two in town who likes to fix up and restore old bikes or Recycle them (ahem), in the case of one of the guys, he mashes together different bikes to create a totally new type of bike. Pretty cool!
We saw quite a few people zipping around testing them out. Since we both already have bikes, we carried on–and saw this giant line outside (and inside) the Sheffield Fire Department! I think everyone in this Indiana town turned out!
Wowza. Lots of people, lots of great smelling food–you could definitely call this annual fish fry a hit!
What better way to spend an afternoon than in a cute town like Dayton, Indiana.
