Cheap Thrills

COUNTRY CARAVAN: Time to dig out those western duds and head over to the Wild Wild West, 4385 W. Ina Road, for the biggest boot stompin' gathering of the year. Country Caravan comes to town at 8:30 p.m. June 1, Thursday, with featured performances by Boy Howday and 4 Runner. Put your two-step in four-wheel drive for this one. Admission is $5 at the door. Call 744-7744 for information.

HOT TIP: Who among us hasn't been fascinated by a firetruck at some point in his life? Something about all those gadgets, lights and horns appeals to an elemental part of our being. Northwest Fire Department gives the public a chance to check it all out from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 3, Saturday, with an open firehouse. Tour the stations, get a close-up look at trucks and equipment and talk with the firefighters. Call 742-4749 for the location of the fire station near you. It's a lot more enjoyable to visit their house than to have them visit yours.
