STILLWATER, Okla. – The Oklahoma 4-H Operation: Military Kids program has teamed up with Frontier City in Oklahoma City to offer Oklahomans three days of fun during Fright Fest, as well as the opportunity to raise money for OMK.
Pat McNally, Oklahoma 4-H OMK coordinator, said this event is for all Oklahomans, not just military families.
“Frontier City is offering discounted tickets for $16 each, plus tax, for everyone Oct. 5-7,” McNally said. “Tickets must be purchased online to receive this discount and $1 of every ticket sold will benefit the Oklahoma 4-H OMK program. We’re excited to offer this fun family activity to everyone in Oklahoma.”
In addition to all of the rides offered at Frontier City, families can enjoy Halloween-themed shows and free trick-or-treating for children under the age of 10. Guests of the park also may pay an additional $5 admission to go through the haunted house.
As an added bonus, military families with military identification can receive free parking if they present their ID and their online ticket at the parking plaza. Tickets can be ordered online at www.frontiercity.com. Enter promo code MILITARY in the top right box. Regular admission price for adults is $34.99.
The mission of Oklahoma 4-H Operation: Military Kids is to raise awareness and address the issues facing military kids, develop local support and create sensitivity for the betterment of military families. Money raised from this event will help provide funds to help meet this mission.
“Our military families make great sacrifices for our country and this is just one way we all can help raise funds to support programming for them,” he said. “This also is a great opportunity for military families to spend some much deserved time together.”
