The inaugural Outdoor Adventure Day will provide visitors with plenty of chances for outdoor fun. Scheduled from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the soccer field along First Street, the event will showcase many of the activities available at the post’s Outdoor Adventure Center and more.
“Pretty much, it’s going to be a day full of activities,” explained Jeffrey Barrett, Outdoor Adventure Center manager. “This is our first annual event.”
Barrett said the event is geared toward families.
“We will have our bounce houses set up; we’ll have canoe races, cornhole contests, people can try out paintball and archery and all the different stuff we offer, plus we’ll have a bunch of giveaways and prizes to hand out,” Barrett said.
In addition, the event will feature several area vendors, including many who specialize in outdoor products and services. Child and Youth Services will conduct face painting and Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation will conduct train rides for kids.
Outdoor Adventure Day and all its activities are free and open to the public.
