    I was just wondering where other upsers go for ups day. In my area we go to Hershey park for $29.00 dollars a ticket per adult. Just curious where everyone else went and how much it was?:thumbup1:

    UPS days for me are Monday thru Friday.
    They don't come in single days around here.

    I think you are referring to family attractions such as Theme Parks. Around here, sometimes we get a discount on a certain day to go to Six Flags Over Georgia.

    Never heard of "UPS DAY" here in Central Ca. I know we get a small token every August 27 (founders day).

    :confused:1 Never heard of UPS day on the West Coast, unless you mean founders day. On this special day we are treated to cake in the morning, who wants f$$&ing cake for breakfast.

    It is nice to see that some areas of the country still have some sort of sponsored outings.... Based on some of the other posts it looks like the HR departments don't have many outside events anymore.

    Up until the 90's, we had a lot of different "UPS Days" here is Southern California. Disneyland was the most popular but some of the other areas went to Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park and Sea World in San Diego and we also have Six Flaggs Magic Mountain in Valencia (which is just north of LA.) We also would buy a block of tickets at a discount to Sporting Events especially Baseball Games at Angel and Dodger Stadium. Some operations would organize their own UPS Day to an event.

    Unfortunately, times have changed and you don't see these "organized" family outings anymore. It seems to me that charity events have replaced the UPS Day as we know it.

    I know there are some of you that can still remember when we had UPS sponsored picnics in the summer and Christmas parties!!!

    We have no UPS Day here niether, in fact we have no safety BBQ's or UPS sponsored family outings for full timers what so ever. We used to about 15 yrs ago. But I find it ironic when UPS does cater in some food for Founder's day and reaching certain goals we are fed chicken wings , coke, and cake. And then the next day they preach to us about taking care of our bodies buy stretching,hyrdating,exercise and a healthy DIET leads to a healthy heart. I'll give them some credit now, I noticed they are bringing in more fruit lately and given out bottles of water.
