HILTON, N.Y. (WHEC) — Saturday’s heavy rains prompted the Hilton Fire Department to cancel all events on the final night of the Hilton Firemen’s Carnival. That left the fire department with excess food that it is unable to return to vendors.
On Monday night, the department held a sale of uncooked hamburgers and hot dogs as well as macaroni salad, potatoes, American cheese slices and frozen dough balls while they lasted.
The sale was between 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. at the Hilton Exempt Club on South Avenue.
