Farmongton, MN WWII Weekend

What's this event like? Is there a good number of vehicles in attendance? Is there a flea market? I am thinking about going to it this weekend, but would like to know more about it. The website doesn't give many details, or indicate how large it is. Thanks!

Bob,

Thanks for your interest. There were a few vendors/flea market there last year, I believe this year they said they expected more, some more militaria guys and a firearms seller I think are coming.

Of course there will be the obligatory jeeps showing up. John Bizal from Midwest Military usually brings out a good assortment of his vehicles, but that will be weather dependent. the Sherman should be there also. The Red Bull guys also show in a variety of vehicles.

The germans have a good showing with their Sd.Kfz, sometimes the Kubelwagen shows. and their motorcycle.

It is no Rockford by any means, but it still is a good sized event. Several battles a day, and static displays by the Germans, Marines, Russians Paratroopers, Engineers etc.

Duluth isn't to far, I think you would enjoy it.

Hope to see tou there.

Rick
