Winter Rally in Green Cove, FL

Post by Jeeps4Brains » Thu Jan 13, 2022 6:42 am

Does anyone have any info on if the 2022 Fl MVPA Winter Rally/Show will be held in Green Cove, FL next month Feb?

Their web page just says info will be coming on the event. If like last year this puts it about 1 month out from now. It would be nice to know to be able to plan for the event.

I saw a post from the WW2 Armor group on FB where they plan on having their restored M26 at the 2022 FL Winter rally.

I got to digging around on FB and found the info. The FL, MVPA site is just not up to date:

Military Vehicle Preservation Association’s First Florida Chapter Winter Rally & Swap Meet, 25-27 March 2022 Reynold’s Industrial Park US Highway 16 at GPS 803 FL-16, Green Cove Springs, FL 32043

The Public is invited to walk through a gathering of historic Military Vehicles, ranging from Jeeps and trucks to Tanks and Artillery. There will be vendors with parts and militaria. FEATURING - WW2 ARMOR AMERICA’S PREMIER “WARRIOR HISTORIANS"

Event will include a battle re-enactment Saturday and Sunday at 1:00pm,
Weapons demonstrations throughout the day.

Weapons firing Saturday at dusk—See the flash! Judging will be available for Display Vehicles. Vendor outdoor spaces are available for rent
Display / Vendor registration form available at: www.flmvpa.org. Be sure to visit our neighbor, The Military Museum of North Florida.

Admission and parking are free to the public, all events are “Family Friendly”
But PLEASE NOTE The tank and artillery firing is VERY LOUD; we recommend NO PETS, hearing protection, and no small children who may be scared by the noise.

We're pretty excited about this event! There's not very many MTO based events out there and this one should be a good one!

Agreed. And another Bump.

So nice to see Free parking & admission. Some events gouge you for every nickel they can. Aniwa, WI show was $10 admission + $3 parking last Aug.
Only 2 things in life make it worth livin'
