It’s the Month of the Military Child and the year of the Air Force’s 70th Birthday, so Team McConnell has lots of reasons to celebrate!  We’re kicking off the party this April with Family Festival of Fun and Eggstravaganza!  On Satuday, 8 April, start  off your morning at 9:30 a.m. at Krueger Recreation Area for our EGGstravaganza Egg Hunt.  We have over 3,000 colorful eggs waiting for children to gather in four age categories:  Ages 0-3, ages 4-6, ages 7-9, and ages 10+.  Children who find one of several golden eggs will win a special stuffed Easter basket!  No registration is required.  Bring your own baskets, and make sure you arrive at 9:30 sharp so you don’t miss out on the action!

After EGGstravaganza, head over to the Dole Center from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. for Family Festival of Fun!  We have something for everyone of every age at one of McConnell’s biggest events of the year!  We’ll have a petting zoo, pony rides, face painting, crafting tables, fire truck/police car/humvee rides, a military dog demonstration, inflatables, carnival games and much, much more!  We haven’t forgotten about the adults…stop by Signatures Lounge for the Outdoor Adventure Expo and see how we can help you enhance your outdoor expeditions this year!  In addition to all the fun, we’ll be serving a free lunch from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
