Independence Event at Mesa Market Place, Saturday, June 30, from 9am to Noon

 You’re invited to attend our Independence Event at the Mesa Market Place Swap Meet Saturday, June 30 from 9:00 a.m. until Noon. The event will take on Row C, just behind the Food Court.

If you stop by the event for no other reason, make sure you enter to win Keith Urban Concert tickets! Enter to win by Noon!

It will be an action-packed event. Children’s events will run from 9:00 a.m. until Noon. Everyone will want to jump into the Epic Game Trailer!

The Epic Game Trailer holds up to sixteen players inside and four outside. That’s five high def TVs in all. The video game party comes fully equipped with seat rumblers, LED lights, lasers and disco balls. They’re equipped with Xbox 360s, Xbox One, Wii and Wii U. … Lots of games, too!

There will also be lots of face painting, balloon art, coloring, drawing and note-writing, for both kids and grownups.

The Arizona Army National Guard, Mesa Police Department, and Mesa Fire Department will also exhibit equipment.

There will be a craft table and Amber will help kids and grownups make some fun crafts.

Kids and grownups will also be able to color pictures and write notes to Armed Forces Personnel serving in the Middle East.

Here’s what will happen to all the colored pictures and notes that will be created at this event: Packages From Home sends thousands of care packages to military personnel serving in the Middle East every year, and will not send a package out without including a personal note or picture in it.

All of your creations will be delivered to them to remind our active duty Armed Forces personnel that they are remembered and are appreciated. Many of them are parents, and it means a lot to them to get an original piece of art from a young person. For more information about Packages From Home, go to
