The three-hour party features music and dancing with a live DJ that’s great with kids. Have some fun on the giant inflatable rides, and make sure to take a peek inside the Paramount Ambulance. Kids can also climb aboard and tour a real fire truck. They’ll show the kids how our local Dubuque Firefighting heroes do their jobs.

Every kid will be excited to see that Theisen’s is offering a free toy giveaway with loads of other surprises and goodies too.
