Attendees had a variety of activities to take in; two moon bounces, animals for feeding and petting, pony rides, face painting, games, food and music provided by The Jazz Ambassadors of the U.S. Army Field Band.
The Jazz Ambassadors played a variety of songs, including big band swing, Latin, contemporary jazz, standards, Dixieland and patriotic selections. At the end of the day they played Retreat as the flag was lowered.
“This is such a great day, I can’t believe they were able to put together something that has everything for people from grandparents to grandkids,” said Shawn Coulter, a senior program analyst with the U.S. Army Medical Materiel Development Activity. “It’s such a beautiful day, this is something really special. I’m glad I brought the family here today, and will be looking forward to it again next year.”
