It will be The Red vs. The Blue.

Davie County fire and rescue personnel (The Red) will battle law enforcement (The Blue) in a benefit softball game Saturday at Rich Park in Mocksville.

Hosted by Advance Station 12 Auxiliary and Support, the evening will include music, food, a food drive – all while giving residents a chance to say thank you to their emergency service workers.

Davie County High School band members will play The National Anthem at 5:30 p.m., with Boy Scouts from Troop 732 in Advance presenting the colors.

Then it will be time for the serious – but fun – game.

Food Lion Feeds will host the food drive.

Come hungry, as the following food trucks will be on site: Donut NV, Charlie’s Soda Shoppe with chicken, burgers, grilled cheese, fries, nachos and shakes), The Dog Wagon, Jason’s Italian Ice, cotton candy, and Wheely Hungry (hot and cold sandwiches, nachos, corn dogs, smoked sausage, fries).

There will be a display of emergency vehicles from the sheriff’s office, highway patrol, EMS, Rescue Squad and fire departments.

Cornhole boards will be set up before the game.
