Bearing arms

. April 29, 2013.

Findlay will look like one of the best protected little cities in the country this May when the Findlay Military Association sponsors its 26th annual Armed Forces Celebration at the Hancock County Fairgrounds on Friday, May 17 through Sunday, May 19. On Friday and Saturday, participants can view tanks and other military vehicles or enjoy World War II reenactments. On Saturday, a breakfast will be held to recognize the soldier and veteran of the year, and Vietnam Veterans will be recognized with a parade honoring the 50th anniversary of their contribution to the Vietnam War. Roger Neff, a former marine who is the event organizer, says the annual swap meet is perfect for military vehicle restorers. “If you’re
in the process of restoring a [military vehicle], you can probably find the parts you need here,” Neff said. 

Friday, 11am-9pm; Saturday, 6:30am- 9pm and Sunday, 7am-3pm. $5 adults, $3 ages 12-18; children under 12 free. 1017 E . Sandusky St. 419-423-1373.
