On Saturday, April 22nd, the Bert’s Big Adventure families from all past trips were invited to gather together for the Spring Reunion Adventure at the 52nd Anniversary of the Atlanta Steeplechase!
The weather couldn’t have been more perfect that day! Nearly 200 Bert’s Big Adventure family members joined in on the day of fun, along with staff and volunteers. Guests enjoyed a full day of horse racing, along with other entertainment like a hat parade, Jack Russell terrier races, skydivers, the Budweiser Clydesdales and more. Families cozied up on the hillside to watch the excitement as the kids played with bubbles donated to Bert’s Big Adventure through Kristin and Bart’s registry.
Along with delicious catering by Jim ‘N Nick’s BBQ, the private Bert’s Big Adventure tent was alive with entertainment, as well! GG Face Painting provided face painting, TNT Fun Times provided an interactive photo booth and Atlanta balloon artist, Avan, entertained the kiddos with balloon animals. Our friend Mike joined us for the day with his friendly cockatoo, Tonto. Last but not least, the kids got to enjoy private line dancing lessons from Ruth Engelberg!
A huge thanks to our photographers – DASH Photography, Stephanie Madison Photography, and Brandon Rains for documenting the day with photos, and to Troika Studio for capturing the magical moments on video! And of course, thank you to Atlanta Steeplechase for providing an amazing day for our families!
