Come On Out and Have Some Fun….It’s Ma-Me-O Days!
Look for Truck #50 ( “The Fald Pumper”) at the 2012 Ma-Me-O Days Parade!!!
Warren Stark (original co-owner of the truck) along with several other department volunteers, will be prepping and shining the antique fire truck for its first showing at the annual Ma-Me-O Days parade. The South Pigeon Lake Fire Department has always been a huge participant at this event, and it all starts with the annual Fireman’s Pancake Breakfast, which runs from 8am – 10:30am.
Once everyone has had their fill of breakfast, the crowds then hurry over to grab the prime spots; lining the roadway to take in the MMO Parade that starts at 11am.
There’s always lots to see in the parade, but the main attraction has always been the fire trucks and the traditional water fight. This tradition, has grown every year and has expanded beyond just the firemen. The crowd and property owners along the parade route have joined in the fun over the past few years. Yup, returning crowd members are now prepared, and they come armed with water guns and water balloons. Property owners along the route also get in the action and have their garden hoses out and ready.
It’s a whole day of family fun, but don’t stop there, make sure to take in the annual Family Dance at the Ma-Me-O Beach town-hall, Saturday night.
On Sunday, July 29th you and your family can also participate, or just go and enjoy the MMO Days Sandcastle contest.
So come on out and have some fun!!

Summer Village of MA-ME-O Beach – The Summer Village of Ma-Me-O Beach is located at the south-east end of Pigeon Lake, on Highway 13A about 1 hour south-west of Edmonton.
Sorely missed, but not to be forgotten.
This is the first year the truck will be entered into the Ma-Me-O parade and Larry Fald, will be noticeably missed. Larry was an active participant and supporter of Ma-Me-O Days. It was something he looked forward to every year, and he took great pleasure in soaking the crowd and cooking at the pancake breakfast. Larry will indeed be missed, but his memory will not be forgotten.
Support for the restoration project continues. A big “Thank You” to all involved, please take the time to check out the updates on our supporters page, and I also was finally able to get my “Little bit about Warren”, check out that update in the About/History page.
See you all at the parade!!!
