Festive Fall Fling Happening at Camp Foster

By: Bill Charles

Date Posted: 2005-10-13

Temperatures are cooling, and that makes a weekend of fun and games even more appealing.

The Camp Foster Fest 2005 is the perfect way to transition into the autumn season, with great food, family fun and fabulous entertainment. Marine Corps Community Services organizers are suggesting that a few hours at the Camp Foster Fest will work up an appetite for crispy fried chicken, yakitori and other tasty treats from vendors.

Children are special this weekend as the Kiddieland offers rides and games.

Something for everyone is the way MCCS describes this year’s event. Best of all, all but the food, rides and games are free.

The entertainment lineup also offers something for everyone. AFN disc jockeys will kick off the party Saturday with a live remote broadcast. Shift gears later in the afternoon to the island beat of taiko drummers from Asato Hideko Taiko Studio. Eisa Chijinshu Wakatida, an eisa drum corps, will also give a performance.

Musical acts range from 5000 Fed, a Christian contemporary band, to local rap artist Sekai, to the Latin jazz from Spice. An Epiphone guitar will be given away each day during “Viva Las Divas,” an Armed Forces Entertainment act. Among other entertainers on stage, look for the ever popular Dave Ralston Band, and classic rock performer Marie. There’s also the salsa rhythm of the Claverio salsa dance group, and hip hop beats of T-Da. The Elements, the latest Filipino band to rock the island, will appear both days
of the festival.

Festival goers can also register to win round trip tickets for two to Chicago, or a seating upgrade, courtesy of United Airlines and Omega World Travel. MCI is also an event sponsor. One lucky winner will drive away in a FREE vehicle and a truckload of fun at Foster Fest. MCCS, BC Used Cars and AFN Wave 89 FM are giving away a ’96 Suzuki Escudo, and it’s filled with cool prizes.

AFN listeners started gearing up Oct. 3 with calls to the Wave89 Morning Show, explaining why their best buddy should win the car. Finalists chosen must be present at Foster Fest 2005 October 15th when five more finalists will be chosen from the crowd to compete in a contest of “How far would you go for your best buddy?” Contestants will have to eat some funky foods such as wasabi, nato or raw squid. The buddy of the person who wins the funky food contest wins the key to the 1996 Suzuki. The contestant also
wins a prize courtesy of MCCS.

The drawing is open to service members, their family members, and U.S. government workers age 18 and older with a valid SOFA I.D. card and driver’s license. Listen to AFN Wave 89.1 for more information on how to win.

Foster Fest 2005 is free for everyone, islandwide. For further information, contact MCCS Special Events at 645-2728.

Eisa Chijinshu Wakatida Eisa Drummers set the beat starting at 7pm, followed by Rapper Sekai, DJ and Dancers at 7:30pm. Spice, Latin Jazz play at 8pm. AFE and Gibson’s “Viva las Divas Show” kicks off at 9:15pm, and Elements are the final performers beginning at 10:45pm.

Sunday cranks the music starting with Dave Ralston Band at 4pm, Marie at 5:15pm, and the big ticket giveaway at 6pm. The Camp Commander welcomes the island crowds at 6:10pm, followed by the salsa sounds of Claverio.
