AQUINO TANK WEEKEND

Saturday 27 May to Sunday 28 May 2017

 
 

So you and a few thousand other visitors thought that last year's Aquino Tank Day was something to behold? Well, hold on to your SABOT rounds because this year, we're bringing you an entire weekend of events starting Saturday 27 May.

 

The theme of this year's event should be obvious: Canadian Armour at War - Celebrating Canada's 150th Brithday!  We're commemorating and celebrating the 150th Anniversary of Canada.

 

But that's not all...

 

We will be revealing our new Leopard Main Battle Tanks!

Be prepared for ROLLING THUNDER as five...  Yes, 5 Leopard Tanks take to the field!

 

See a live TANK BATTLE, Historical Battle re-enactments and more action in our Tank Arena.

 

Some very special guests will be on hand, including serving and retired soldiers, veterans and equipment from the Gulf War era, also known as Operation Friction by Canadian Forces, Operation Desert Shield (US Forces), and Operation Granby (Britain), will also be on hand.

 

Although our final plans for the weekend are still under wraps, here's a brief rundown of what you can expect:

Saturday, 27 May 2017 - Live vehicle demonstrations, re-enactments and tank rides culminating in a LIVE SHOW.

 

Sunday, 28 May 2017 - Live vehicle demonstrations, re-enactments and tank rides culminating in second LIVE SHOW, with a knock out finale.

You won't want to miss this very special weekend. More details including timings, admission, and more will be announced later this winter.
