Gardner Firemen's Muster

Saturday, July 14, 2018

An antique hand pumped fire engine muster where crews pump their machines to see who can play the longest stream of water. This is the oldest organized sport in the United States. Spectators are invited to try out pumping the machines! For more information on the sport and the machines visit: The first firemen’s muster was held on July 4th, 1849 in Bath, Maine. It was a competition among crews with hand pumped fire engines to see who could shoot the longest stream of water. The tradition has been kept alive into the 21st century; every year on a Saturday close to July 4th, another muster is held in Bath.
