Behold! “Freddy Da Firetruck” lives!

Workers pulled the tarp off of the brand new play firetruck a few days ahead of schedule Saturday morning. The truck was originally slated to arrive some time this week.

The new Freddy is an “exact replica” of the truck that D.C. Department of General Services workers mistakenly dumped in the trash last month, officials said during a special event earlier this month.

The city will celebrate Freddy’s return with another “fun day” in the park this Wednesday from 4-8 p.m., according to a D.C. Department of Parks and Recreation flyer.

Like the last “fun day,” the event will include free snacks, a real firetruck and an inflatable slide. The party will also include DPR’s “skatemobile,” which is described as a “mobile roller rink.” And of course, kids will be able to climb atop the newly built Freddy.
