Blue Holler ATV Park, located on Ollie Road in Mammoth Cave, KY is hosting a "Military/First Responder Appreciation Event" this Saturday, November 7th, sponsored by C&C Firearms.
The event is also in conjunction with both the Edmonson and Grayson County Angel Tree Projects, which provide toys and other Christmas gifts for local underprivileged children.
Leonard Hill, a park manager, said military personnel and first responders are sometimes overlooked and that the park simply "wants to do a good thing for Edmonson and Grayson Counties."
He said admission is free to all military personnel with a valid ID and first responders can simply write down the name of their organization with the name of the official in charge to get in free as well. However, free admission isn't limited to those folks only. Hill said they will also allow admission with a donation of at least a $10 toy that will go directly to the Angel Tree Project. "We hope we don't take in one single dollar. We hope everyone brings a toy. This isn't about the park, it's about our military, emergency personnel, and our kids."
Some of the featured events will be live music from four different bands, with sound provided by Kentucky Music Company, a military style obstacle ATV course suitable for all ages, a scheduled appearance from the Air Evac Helicopter, food vendors, and prizes will be given away.
Gates will open at 8am, obstacle course will open at 10am, and live music will run from 11am to 4pm.
