On Saturday, June 4, more than 20,000 people gathered for the annual Bowie Fest in Bowie, MD. For 45 years, Bowie has celebrated this family-friendly tradition, returning this year with over 200 local vendors to the peaceful Allen Pond Park. This year, Bowie Fest included three stages of entertainment by local entertainers. Other activities included paddle boating, face painting and an arts and crafts area. Around the pond, participants could enjoy and sample food from area vendors. Patient First was a sponsor of the event and Kid’s stage. The Patient First Kid’s stage featured African drum songs, stories, games, Animals of Maryland, Caribbean Influenced Children’s song and a Magic Show. Staff from the Bowie Patient First enjoyed interacting with event attendees. Several of the event attendees who stopped by our table were complimentary of the services they received and took time to say thank you for the care they received from our doctors, nurses and support staff. We are already looking forward to next year’s event.
