• MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND SUNDAY •
DANCING, FOOD, & FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY!
There was dancing to Live music... R&B and rock 'n roll music by Andre and the all-stars and IrieFuse.
MBVFD gear flew off the shelves of the Tee Shirt Booth, famous for MBVFD Logo Gear: Tees, hoodies, hats, travel mugs, totes, dog leashes & collars, bandanas, and some new surprises.
Businesses and Muir Beach Fans all over Marin and beyond donated prizes for our 2016 BBQ Raffle - check out who won books, gift certificates to restaurants, overnight stays at hotels ... and lots more!
Kids of all ages will tried to master the climbing wall, and give the bouncy houses a good workout and stay on the bucking bull.
A special thanks to the more than 170 community volunteers, many of whom work for months each year to make the BBQ a great success. Big thanks also to businesses contributors for their generous contributions of goods, services & raffle prizes!

Ever wonder why the live music at every Muir Beach Volunteer Firefighters BBQ is always so exceptionally good? Chalk it up to André Pessis! Year after year André is the guy who recruits the musicians that are featured as "André's Allstars." They're André's friends and associates and they're long-time professionals. (Check out their websites!)
The world recognizes André as an Award Winning Songwriter (16 hits and in seven #1 albums), but Muir Beach folks know André as a home-boy...one of the initial Volunteer Firefighters (over 40 years ago)...and a long-time friend of the BBQ that provides most of the money that keeps the Volunteers going.
So that's why the music is so good. Come next year and see for yourself. And put your hands together for André and all his All-Stars. They rock!
