St. Paul Firefighters heat up the Minnesota State Fair


The Minnesota State Fair “just got hotter” with the addition of a booth selling the St. Paul Firefighters calendar. The calendar, now in its fifth year, is sold to help raise money for the Children’s Cancer Research fund, according to the Midwest Firefighters website.

The St. Paul Firefighters calendar displays physically fit firefighters in shirtless poses. A different firefighter is shown each month.

Patrick Engelmann and Luke Swoboda, of the St. Paul Fire Company Float Pool, are two of the firefighters working the booth located on the corner of Dan Patch and Cooper (across from the Food Building) where the calendars are being sold. Volunteers also help at the booth.

The official release party of the Midwest Firefighters 2014 calendar is Friday, Aug. 30th at 7:00 pm at O’Gara’s Bar and Grill in St. Paul, or Fair visitors can purchase the calendar at their booth.

The Minnesota State Fair runs through Labor Day, Sept. 2.
