Almost as old as the KVFD is their annual dance. As the story goes, the first dance was held in the spring of 1892 and there has been a dance every year since then. For a few years, during the 60’s and 70’s, there was a dance at the Beaver Building (later purchased by the city of Wisconsin Dells). The name was then changed to the Community Building. A second dance was held at the “Warf” a distance of about four blocks from the Beaver Building. Seven taverns on the route between the two dances made for an interesting, if not sometimes short evening, for some of the dance goers. Each year the dance committee decides where to have the event, either at the Fire Station or at another location.
