Tanksintown 2006 says “Tank You”!

Armchair General

This year’s "Tanksintown" event held in Mons, Belgium will play host to a unique collection of WWII armour and aims to be a very special event indeed.  With registration for this year’s event limited to WWII armour only, this aspires to be one of the most exciting concentration of such vehicles in the world.

Featuring an exhibition on Saturday 26th August 2006, there will also be free rides on the exhibition field.  On Sunday the 27th, the Tanks will deploy in an exciting re-enactment with pyrotechnic effects and enter the town itself.

"Tankintown" is an annual event celebrating the liberation of the City of Mons, and the City was pleased to host more than 30 Tanks in last year’s event, so if you want to participate, contact Pierre Deghaye on 0032 6535 4419 or visit the website.
