Top Activity For Military Families This Summer!

Welcome back to Blush & Camo! Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy schedule to be here and I’m so happy you are.

For those of you who are new around here, welcome! I’m Julianna, and I inspire women to elevate their lifestyle and grow their dream wardrobe through budget friendly tips! I believe you don’t have to break the bank to look amazing!

Today’s post is a little different because instead of sharing style advice I’m sharing an amazing opportunity for veterans, active duty service members, people with disabilities and their families who live in the Nashville area!

For those who are new to my blog I graduated from West Point in 2013 and was an Army Officer for five years before becoming a full-time blogger in 2018. My last duty station was Fort Campbell, KY and my husband is currently stationed there and overseas!

The military community continues, and will always, hold a special place in my heart. That’s why I am so excited to share a fun, family event happening July 6th in Nashville!

I also used to ice skate growing up and have fond memories of getting on the ice every weekend. I recently got back into a skating rink and let’s just say I don’t have the same skills that I used to!

The event I am talking about is SKATEFEST!

If haven’t heard of this event before I share all the details with you in this post!

Learn to Skate USA is partnering with U.S. Figure Skating to host five adaptive SkateFests across the USA. The greater Nashville area is one of those locations this event is coming to Saturday, July 6th!

SkateFest is a free event designed for Active Duty military, veterans and their families. All costs are covered to include skate rentals, instruction, and adaptive equipment for those with a disability.

The event is a fun and welcoming activity for people of all ages to go and try something new in a safe environment.

Scott Hamilton is also making an appearance at SkateFest! He is a retired American figure skater and Olympic gold medalist. He won four consecutive U.S. championships, four consecutive World Championships, and a gold medal in the 1984 Olympics!
