DENISON, TX -- A crowd turned out to witness quite the feat of strength and to take a look at vintage cars.

It was all part of the Fall Festival in Denison on Saturday. A Houston man pulled a fire truck with a rope in front of the Lone Star Masonic Lodge. The fire captain in the truck says it was running in neutral, as the man with the help of a harness, pulled the truck a few hundred feet up Fannin Avenue.

"It's kind of unexplainable, pain, elation, a little bit of fear with everyone watching but total adrenaline rush it's awesome," says Travis Ortmayer.

Ortmayer says he makes a living in strong man competitions, and he remembers his very first contest being in a nearby parking lot in Denison.

Also on display, classic cars and motorcycles lined Main Street. There was also food, and crafts for sale at various booths, and a small carnival was set up at the grass lot that used to house the old Denison High School.
