While U.S. military bases around the world are foregoing their Independence Day celebrations in an effort to cut costs, Schweinfurt is pulling together available resources to put on one last garrison-sponsored Fourth of July celebration, featuring a car show, fireworks and more.
To celebrate our country’s independence the garrison’s Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation has prepared a variety of events and activities that you and your family can enjoy together.
The festivities start Thursday morning with the Firecracker Fun Run, featuring a 2K, 3k and 5K youth runs, as well as a 5K and 10K for adults.
Those who enjoy revving up or showing off their engines can do so in the annual World of Wheels car show hosted by the Auto Skills Center. The kids will be entertained with a variety of rides and activities, including the NFL’s Punt Pass & Kick skill’s competition. Food and beverages will be available for purchase from vendors, including family readiness groups.
The event is open to all U.S. ID holders as well as Host Nation guests who have a valid picture identification (Ausweiss).
Pacing yourself throughout the day will allow you and your family to enjoy saluting the state flags ceremony. And don’t forget to stick around for the grand finale where you can ooh and aah at the fireworks display accompanied by patriotic music. Check out the flyer below for information on all Fourth of July events.
