"We're gonna' raise money for the Firefighters Benevolent Association as well some veterans charities so we thought it'd be a great addition to the event that was already established," said Brian Fuller, the fire chief for Greenacres.
Fuller said the family-friendly event will have bounces house for the kids and there is free parking.
WFLX anchor Mike Trim is serving as one of the judges along with former Major League Baseball catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
The Greenacres Fire Rescue team has been on a winning streak.
"Yes, [we won] three out of the last four we've entered; we've won People's Choice. We're kind of unstoppable right now. It'd be nice to go for a home victory," said Brian Brady, the fire rescue captain for Greenacres.
