SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. –The 50th Force Support Squadron hosted the 16th annual Spring Fling celebration Saturday.  

“(It’s a) celebration for the spring season, but ultimately to thank our service members and all those who serve and work here at Schriever.  (It allows) time to celebrate all their hard work,” said Jennifer Stark, 50 FSS marketing director.

The theme for Spring Fling was “Once Upon A Time” and advertisements encouraged attendees to dress as their favorite fairy tale character.  Activities included a petting zoo, pony rides, games, bounce houses, face painting, balloon art as well as pictures with Harry the bunny and “Beauty and the Beast” characters.

“It helps you to meet new people at the base and just brings the community together,” said Nicole Delaney, Schriever spouse. 

She said she enjoyed the games and seeing the kids have fun. 

Pony ride attendant, Emily Allen said she loves her job.

“I think it’s really awesome that this is going on.  I like it a lot.  This is my second year working here,” she said.

Nathan Lincoln, Noah’s Ark Petting Zoo and Pony Ride owner, said the best part of supervising the petting zoo is seeing all the kids and the way they love the animals.

“It’s a lot of fun and all the kids get to come out and they have the bounce houses for them.  We’ve been coming out here now for seven or eight years at least,” Lincoln said.

Other attendees favored the face paints and opportunity to see the Disney characters.  Kamoania Fajardo, 8, said Ariel is her favorite fairy tale character.

“(Ariel) has courage that she can become anything,” said Fajardo. 

She enjoyed getting her face painted and was excited about the bike give-away which will take place later in the week.

Spring Fling is always held the weekend before Easter Sunday.

“This year’s event was great for everybody.  We couldn’t have done this without the great Team Schriever volunteers and the sponsors,” said Thea Wasche, 50 FSS deputy commander.
