Hands On History

July 2 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Hands on History–Uniformed reenactors will be displaying weapons from the Texas Revolution through Vietnam, and members of today’s Texas Army National Guard will be exhibited weapons from the current time.

You’ll be able to climb up inside aircraft and armored vehicles and actually TOUCH HISTORY. A fun and educational experience for the entire family!

The event runs from 6 to 9 p.m. with Free Admission for all. To avoid waiting in long lines to get inside a tank, consider purchasing an “Early Bird” ticket for 5 pm entry for $5 per person ($1 for those 13 and under.) Cash, Debit and Credit accepted.

We recommend long pants as some vehicles will be outside and tank armor gets pretty hot! Sensible shoes are a must!

Freal Milkshakes & Smoothies and Kona Snow Cones will be on hand starting at 4 p.m. so if you want to eat or get a snack before, during or after the event you can!
