Those looking for an interesting adventure during Memorial Day are invited to take part in all kinds of military fun, as the Military Heritage Collection of North Texas will host an open house.

The annual Veterans Memorial Weekend Open House will kick off Saturday night, May 24, with a special dinner just for veterans provided by local businesses. For information about the dinner call 214-794-8992.

At 10 a.m. May 25, there will be events such as weapon demonstrations, military uniform and equipment displays. Depending on the weather, rides are given in military vehicles, including tanks, as long as the ground is not soft due to rain. In the event of rain, there is still a host of other vehicles for guests to ride in.

The museum is located at 20798 CR 590 in Nevada. If the military vehicles don’t give it away, those looking for the collection can locate it by looking for a 500-pound bomb mailbox.
