Family Festival & Concert

[Scroll down to the bottom of the page for the photo gallery.]

Everyone unplugged and kicked back at the Annual Family Festival & Concert on Friday, August 8, from 3 to 6 p.m. in Patriot Park. This free event was open to all eligible users of Peterson AFB.

It was an evening full of old-fashioned Americana-style things to do. Folks relaxed on their blankets and lawn chairs, while they grooved to the live performance by the popular Phat Daddy & the Phat Horn Doctors, a band that plays “some of the hottest Funk R&B, Jazz, Blues, Latin & Pop music as you dance the night away.”

The free food included hot dogs, hamburgers, and beverages. There were also samples from Blue Bell Creameries, Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill, and Royal Crest Dairy. Popcorn, snow cones, and funnel cakes were available at an old-fashioned price. Kids enjoyed sack races, a watermelon seed contest, bag toss games, a climbing wall, and fun inflatables.

Phat Daddy and the Phat Horn Doctors will perform live at the Family Festival & Concert on August 8 in Patriot Park.

Both on- and off-base helping agencies were there to provide information about their services and resources, and 21FSS activities promoted their programs and events as well. For those new to Peterson AFB, the Family Festival & Concert was a great way for attendees to connect to the things that matter for themselves and their families.

Plus, the National Park Service issued passes at the event. Active duty military families got a free annual National Park pass.

Prizes included five $100 FSS Gift Cards good at all FSS Services/MWR activities; two $25 gift cards for the Base Exchange; and two, two-person membership packages to Farrell’s Extreme Bodyshaping valued at $389 each.FSS-Gift-Card-2011-200pxls
