Hose Cart Races 2017
A wet time was had in the bucket brigade competition during the annual hose cart races on Cortez Street in downtown Prescott Sunday, July 2. With a grant from APS, all-new hose carts were on the streets this year for the annual races. The annual events date back to possibly the late 1800s or early 1900s when Prescott had a volunteer fire department that consisted of the Toughs, Dudes and Mechanics.
