The Fire Brigade organized a tournament of races and competitions attended by firemen from far and wide, and their parades featured a "Poor House on Fire" among other themes.

Apparently the whole series of observances was organized by the New Brunswick Historical Society, which had been organized in 1874. It was they, too, who caused this record to be published.
