Several people took advantage of cooler weather Aug. 23 to celebrate the final days of summer at Eastman Amphitheater compliments of the Fort Knox Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation.
Some Soldiers, families and community members took in the live music of country music acts Shannon Lawson and Ruby and the Gents, as well as pop cover band Dance Floor Riot. Others participated in a corn-hole tournament or just played for fun.
Children tackled the various bounce houses and left their marks on painting easels throughout the evening.
