Worldwide Day of Play, Car Show, Yard Sale 2013



A whole lot of fun! A whole lot of laughing! A whole lot of dancing!

It was a picture-perfect September day in Colorado – blue skies, warm sunshine and not a cloud in the sky. An ideal last day of summer.

Thousands had a fantastic time as the Peterson AFB Youth Programs hosted Nickelodeon’s Worldwide Day of Play from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, September 21, in Patriot Park. They offered a playful day of games, athletic fun, healthy snacks and cool looking cars.

The Worldwide Day of Play is a day when Nickelodeon encourages families to “Get up, get out and go play!” Kids enjoyed a climbing wall, huge inflatable obstacle courses, games and plenty of healthy snacks. Plus, they won lots of neat prizes.

Kids loved goofing off with the Kia Hamstars and getting high-fives from McGruff, the Crime Fighting Dog. And there was a caricature artist who delighted families with his talented sketches.

To add to the excitement and playfulness, the Junior Enlisted Association hosted a Play on Wheels Car & Cycle Show in Patriot Park, and the Youth Center, in partnership with Tierra Vista Communities, hosted a Base-Wide Yard Sale in the Youth Center parking lot.

Also, as part of the play outside theme, the RP Lee Youth Center hosted a base-wide yard sale from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. in the Youth Center parking lot in partnership with Tierra Vista Communities. Proceeds went to the Youth Center’s Keystone Club program. All ID cardholders – on or off base – were invited to participate.

And big kids (aka, adults) enjoyed the Play on Wheels Car & Cycle Show, organized by the Junior Enlisted Association. There were lots of cool, slick, shiny two-wheeled and four-wheeled vehicles to drool over with awesome details – like green headlights – and even one in the process of being restored – a 1966 Nash.
