9 a.m. -5 p.m. Saturday
SPENCER — The NC Transportation Museum will pay tribute to the armed forces with two Salute the Troops events on June 29.
From 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Military Through the Ages will present living history, with reenactment groups setting up camp across the grounds, showing what daily life was like for America’s soldiers throughout history, while displaying military vehicles from WWI through Operation Iraqi Freedom and weapons of war from throughout the nation’s history.
The museum will close at 5 p.m., but reopen at 7 p.m. as free fireworks activities get underway. All events between 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. are free and open to everyone. There will be music, food vendors, trackless train rides, Uncle Sam on stilts, a kids’ Uncle Sam/Lady Liberty costume contest, military vehicle rides, and a bigger, better fireworks show than the museum has ever hosted before.
The fireworks display starts at 9:15 p.m.
