HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

The Back in the Day Grown-Ups Field Day event on Redstone has been postponed due to weather.

The event was initially scheduled for Saturday at Redstone Arsenal's Activity Field. The new date has not yet been announced.

If you have pre-registered and would like a refund, please contact Family and MWR at 256-876-2501, located in Building 1500 on Redstone Arsenal.

There's no need for an Arsenal badge for Back in the Day Grown-Ups Field Day. Just show your license at Gate 10 on Patton Road.

The Arsenal's Morale, Welfare and Recreation Division is hosting the the-open-to-the-public event that's the kick-off to Armed Forces Week Celebration.

Some of the activities include inflatable boxing and joust, bubble balls and an obstacle course.

“We just wanted to do something different. Something that wasn't currently being offered in the area. It started out as a conversation with co-workers,

'Wouldn't it be fun if.' It just kind of snowballed from there and developed into a playful event for adults,” said Stephanie Stone, Redstone Arsenal MWR Marketing Manager.

Gate 10 on Patton Road will be open for everyone to go on through and present your license.

The event is geared toward adults but there will some activities for kids.

You can sign up for teams at $20 of four people or as an individual at $7, general admission is $4. Just click here for that information.

Officials with Redstone are monitoring the weather and will make the call on whether or not to go on with the event on their Redstone MRW Facebook Page
