Home Team Festival 2015 (13 - 15 Nov)
Brought my nephews to the Home Team Festival 2015 on the second day of the event.
The boys were so excited to see the men in uniform. There were interesting and fun activities for everyone ... and awesome photo opportunities with our men in uniform and the cool vehicles.
Just after entering the exhibition hall, there were long queues to board a couple of ships displayed on site. We skipped queuing to see the vessels because the SPF K-9 show was commencing.
The boys were fascinated with the intelligent dogs who demonstrated how they search and rescue victims. After the show, the spectators were allowed to pet the dogs. Some of the children really enjoyed hugging and petting the adorable dogs.
At another show, we watched some officers conduct forcible entry, take down non-compliant criminals and control a riot.
The boys learnt how to handle a fire extinguisher and were so thrilled when they were allowed to try the guns (bullets not included). They were ecstatic to have their pictures taken with the uniform men in their tactical gear. To the young boys, the men seemed like super heroes from movies. haha....
We tried our hand to save 'victims' from disaster areas. They also received gifts of badges, small toys and stickers. The boys had lots of fun and were reluctant to go home. haha,,,,
