The Gladewater fire and police departments are coming together for a dunking booth from noon until 6 p.m. on Saturday, where people will have the opportunity to dunk council members and the fire chief.

“It’s the camaraderie, not only of the vendors often times they will see each other at other events. Also, it brings the Gladewater community close,” Lois Reed, executive director of the Gladewater Chamber of Commerce, said. “We love to have people from out of town, but we also love for our own community to come together.”
