Firefighters and Pasta
Hundreds of people are packing the Yakima fire station on North Front Street tonight to enjoy some pasta.
It's part of the 18th annual Spaghetti Feed.
People are invited to purchase a plate of spaghetti and meet local firefighters.
Proceeds from the event -- which goes until 7 tonight -- will go to the local American Red Cross.
Firefighters say it's one of their favorite events of the year.
"It allows us to give back to the community, this year we're helping support the Red Cross in their endeavors," said firefighter Nick Sloan, "It's also a good chance for the community to come into our fire station to talk to firefighters in a capacity where we normally don't get to sit and visit. Mostly, they're having a bad day, so this is different.")
The spaghetti feed raises about $2,000 a year on average.
