An American hip hop recording artist and a band will headline the annual Foster Fest taking place this weekend at Camp Foster.

Marine Corps Community Services Okinawa says Marvin and The Experience, one of America’s top Rhythm & blues / hip hop performers, will appear, as will the Inner City All Stars. Both are appearing courtesy of Armed Force Entertainment. They’ll be joined, MCCS officials say, by variety band Subfive Jazz Band, taiko drummers, eisa and more.

The festival takes place Saturday 3 ~ 10 p.m. and Sunday 1 ~ 10 p.m. at the Camp Foster Parade Deck. Admission is free and open to everyone island-wide, but officials say no pets, outside coolers or alcohol will be permitted. In addition to the top notch entertainment, the Foster Fest will feature amusement rides, Kiddie Land for children, and enough cultural foods to appease the heartiest appetite.

One thing MCCS festival-goers have come to expect over the years are great prizes and giveaways, and MCCS says that this year will be no exception.

Generous sponsors, MCCS says, will be offering round-trip tickets for two to one of six United Airlines USA destinations courtesy of United Airlines and Omega World Travel. On Saturday, MCCS and BC Used Cars will give away the 2008 Truckload of Fun at 4 p.m. Festival participants are encouraged to be present by 3 p.m., to become a possible finalist in the chance to win a Isuzu Bighorn SUV loaded with fabulous prizes. MCCS says Truckload of Fun participants must be 18 or older, possess a valid SOFA driver’s license, sign a waiver, and have an appetite to tackle some funky foods.
