BATH — The 70th anniversary of the Bath Fire Department Horse Show featured area riders while raising money for the Bath Fire Department.

The event, which took place June 28-29 on the horse grounds at the corner of Revere and Everett roads, generates about $25,000 each year for new equipment and new training for the Bath Fire Department, according to show officials.
