Marquette, MI – August 5, 2017 – The annual “Catch the Vision” Community Day is really picking up at Lions Field Recreation Area! The Marquette Charter Township festivities started with the Sunny Sluggers and the Township Folk taking the field to kick off the softball tournament. Spectators chowed down on lunch from the food vendors, B Dogs BBQ, Copper Crust Co., and Oscar’s Ice Cream Treats while watching the game. While the result of the game ended with the our team advancing to the next round, it was EZ Stop who came away the champions for the day.
Kids are out enjoying the giant inflatables brought by Double Trouble DJ’s with live music playing from the stage. All day the little ones are getting a chance to see the new township ambulance along with a display of other emergency response vehicles.
The Law has already showed up to make sure the kids are extra safe. Children can meet the Marquette County Sheriff’s Department to get their fingerprints taken, voice recordings made, a new photo ID, and a disc to taken home for the parents.
Haven’t made it out to Community Day yet? You can still go and enjoy hours of fun at Lions Field! Sunny.FM’s Walt Lindala just left the stage with his band, the Flat Broke Blues Band. Daydreamers are bringing the night to a close playing until 10 tonight.
The Marquette County Sheriff’s Department & rescue vehicles were at the recreation area until 4pm, with free face painting ending at 4pm as well. The Double Trouble Entertainment’s bounce houses have gone too, but there is still open softball games, a the jungle gym for the kids and snacks. So bring your kid out for some evening fun, grab a snack, and listen to some good music! Don’t forget to bring you lawn chair.
