Redstone Arsenal to celebrate Army’s birthday

REDSTONE ARSENAL – Officials on Redstone Arsenal are inviting residents to help in celebrating the 248th birthday of the U.S. Army.

“We are excited to raise awareness on the Army birthday, Army Heritage Month celebration,” Col. Brian Cozine said. Cozine serves as Redstone Garrison Commander.

“This celebration has something for everyone. It is our hope that the local community will celebrate this birthday with us and enjoy all that we have to offer,” Cozine said.

The 248-year birthday celebration on June 10 will open at 5 p.m. throughout the Redstone Gateway area, just north of Redstone’s Gate 9 on Research Park Boulevard. A birthday cake will be cut during a brief ceremony.

The celebration will continue with flashes of chrome and glass in the Cruise-In Car Show.

Vendors for decor and fashion crafts, along with tempting refreshments from food concessions, will attend the celebration. DJ Slim Robb and local band Buck’d Up will entertain with live music.

Children can enjoy a good time in the Kid’s Play Zone. The party’s finale will be a fireworks display at 8:30 p.m. The event on Redstone Arsenal will close at 9 p.m.

The event is free and open to the public. The celebration fittingly is scheduled during Army Heritage Month.

This year marks the third time that Redstone Gateway has hosted the Army’s birthday celebration. In 2022, the event attracted about 5,000 attendees.

The 248th Army Birthday Celebration is presented by Redstone Arsenal Family, Morale, Welfare and Recreation, along with local sponsors.

Sponsors for the event include Redstone Gateway, Avion Solutions, AL.com, Fox 54, WHRP 94.1, WZYP 104.3, Robins & Morton, MILTOP and Yulista.

The Cruise-In Car Show will have categories for “Car,” “Truck” and “Jeep.” To participate, the fee is $10.

The car show’s awards will include $200 for first place; $100 for second place; and $50 for third place in the three show categories. For “Best in Show,” the entry will win the Commander’s Cup.

Registering for the car show does not guarantee a spot. Individuals should allow one week for notification by email.

Food trucks to-date will include The Lunch Wagon, Teresita’s Tamales, Ramona J’s and SnoBiz Shaved Ice.
