Outdoor Recreation held an expo at Bama Park here, March 27.

The expo is a bi-annual event that ODR coordinates to showcase their products and services to the Desert Lightning Team.

Many of ODR services go unused. The recreation specialists put together this event to combat this issue.

This year, ODR teamed up with The Reid Park Zoo for National Wildlife Week to bring a reptile exhibit to the expo, where children were able to learn about the animals, and pet them.

Jennifer States, 355th Force Support Squadron recreation assistant, said the event was a success with approximately 500 people showing up.

“We ran out of food in the first hour,” States said. “We planned for 300 people, so we were very excited to see almost double that.”

ODR displayed different rentals including tents, campers, kayaks and dunk tanks for people to see and explore.

“Quite a few people learned about the many items we have to offer,” States said. “Everyone got a chance to try out and see what we offer for free.”

ODR thanked the customers who came to the expo with raffle prizes.

“We had several raffle giveaways,” States said. “We raffled off everything from rentals to theme park tickets to guided tours.”

For more information on rentals contact ODR 228-3736.
