For those of you with grandchildren, or young children, or are just young at heart....
  • In between will be K-9 police dog demonstrations, fire department drills, pumpkin crafts, kids games and heavy equipment to explore and ride in.
Or are just hungry.....
  • Of course, there will be plenty of food - hot dogs, popcorn, tacos, candy, doughnuts, cider and more.
  •  And it's all free.
This event is for everyone, not just Bloomfield Township residents.
  • Last year's open house drew thousands of visitors. Come and see what the Township has and how it all works.
FREE....FREE....FREE..... Really?
  • And it's all free.   So they say. 
Read my blog from Oct. 16,  2011 on this event being "free".  "Free" can be expensive.
