The 507th Air Refueling Wing and the 513th Air Control Group are joining forces this year to bring both Reserve units together for an All-Star Family Day to be held May 6, 2023, in Hangar 1030. 

Each year, the 507th ARW hosts Family Day and invites families and friends out to the wing to enjoy a half-day of fun, family activities and static aircraft and vehicle displays, as well as helping agency information. A big change this year is the Okies will celebrate alongside the 513th Air Control Group for a baseball-themed All-Star Family Day. Baseball attire/jerseys are encouraged! In addition, OKC Dodgers mascots, Brooklyn and Brix, will be in attendance to take photos with families. 

“We are so excited to host family day this year to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the Air Force Reserve with our Okie family and our fellow Reservists and families in the 513th ACG,” said Col. Michael Parks, 507 ARW commander.

The event will kick off at 11:00 a.m. and will run until 3:00 p.m. in and around Hangar 1030.

This year, the band Almost Yesterday is scheduled to perform live music throughout the event and will perform Top 40 hits across a variety of musical genres.
