The United States Army is celebrating its 239th birthday this year and we are planning a community wide party on June 12, 2014 to honor the wonderful partnership Killeen and Fort Hood share.
The celebration will take place Thursday, June 12, 2014 from 4pm-7pm in the heart of Downtown Killeen along Avenue D between 4th and 8th street. They will be blocking off the streets and throwing a HUGE party with live music, a food truck face-off, arts & crafts vendors geared to soldiers and their families, birthday cake, attractions of all kinds, and more! The Armed Services YMCA will partner with the City to offer children’s activities for the families attending this event. We will bring our bouncy house and provide games, face painting, and games for the children.
