We are planning several events in the next few weeks for our annual Armed Forces Celebration, and we hope you’ll join us. This year, Redstone Arsenal marks 80 years of supporting our nation!
On Monday, June 28 come enjoy a night of music and fireworks downtown! Arts Huntsville and the City of Huntsville Department of Parks & Recreation’s 2021 Military Appreciation Night Concert in the Park will feature the Maneuver Center of Excellence (MCOE) Band from Ft. Benning, Ga. Come join the fun in the beautiful Big Spring Park as we celebrate our military, and don’t forget to stay through the fireworks show!
On Tuesday, June 29, we invite you to a Community Softball Game at Toyota Field. The event starts at 6 p.m. and a team from Redstone Arsenal will take on local Community Leaders. Currently scheduled to play for the community team: Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle, Madison Mayor Paul Finley, Madison County Commission Chairman Dale Strong, Huntsville Multicultural Affairs Officer Kenny Anderson, Huntsville City Council representatives Devyn Keith and Frances Akridge, State House Representative Rex Reynolds, Madison County Sheriff Kevin Turner, and more! The team is called the North Alabama Rockets.
Admission and parking at Toyota Field are free, so bring your entire family and make an evening of it! Gates open at 5 p.m. and concessions will be available for purchase. Toyota Field is cashless, so please be prepared to pay with debit or credit card, or mobile tap-to-pay. Here’s what to know before you go to Toyota Field.
Fun fact: Madison Mayor Paul Finley played baseball back in the day!
