Stars and Stripes Family Night

First Division Museum and Tank Park
Wednesday, June 14, 6 – 8 pm

Calling all families! Report to Cantigny as we celebrate Flag Day and the 248th birthday of the United States Army! We promise a night of fun activities, including popular games with a military twist, such as “Tank Tac Toe” or “Sergeant, Says” with a veteran Drill Sergeant. Camouflage your cupcake, complete an Army-themed craft, and tackle our obstacle course at boot camp training. You can even climb aboard a tank for story time with a veteran! Return to civilian life with lasting family memories from Cantigny Park and the First Division Museum.

Entertainment is courtesy of the Illinois Army National Guard’s 144th Army Band based in Chicago. The 144th Army Band is a unique group of Soldiers that perform 35 to 50 events each year across the state.

In addition, vehicles from the First Division Museum’s historic fleet will be displayed, and also a cool military vehicle courtesy of the Illinois Army National Guard’s 108th Sustainment Brigade in Chicago.
