Historic Exhibits

Exhibits from WWI, WW2 and Vietnam, this year the exhibit will feature uniforms, Vietnam firebase, a bunker, vehicles, weapons and the veterans that know all about them.

Skydive Drop-In

This is always a treat, because the multi-jumper team drops right into the middle of the park in front of the amphitheater. With smoke and flags they jump at 3:40pm

Kid Zone

We hate for our kids to stand in line to do fun free things. This year will have a toddler zone and a kid zone, we're increasing the amount of inflatables to OVER 20 for kids to enjoy.

Aircraft Flyover

Helping us to kick off the day we have an “aircraft flyover” that really is an awesome flight display that redefines flyover. The planes are scheduled be over us at 1:20pm

Military Displays

With the full support of Ft Gordon and military branches, we’ll have vehicles, demonstrations and exhibits that are a fine mix of public education and awesome entertainment.
