Not sure how we caption this one. Is it a wayward troupe of firefighters-turned-chorus dancers? Or perhaps a corrections facility fire brigade that doubles as nightly prison entertainment? The bright gear and brighter truck are part of the Pink Heals Tour, which made an appearance today at Triangle Town Center. Formerly named the Pink Ribbon Tour, it's a non-profit organization that tours the country to raise cancer awareness.

The Raleigh Fire Department sponsored today's event, with participation from agencies including Falls, New Hope, Rolesville, and Wake Forest fire departments, and Six Forks and Wake County EMS. Who's who in the pictured dancing crew? We'll name no names, but it includes a number of chiefs, one fireman's association president, and some blogger/photographer guy. The other pics are equally fun. Thanks for everyone's support. Click to enlarge and chuckle.
