The Armed Forces History Museum in Largo, FL is hoping to put a bit more memorial back into Memorial Day. The 8th Annual Memorial Day Funfest is Monday, May 30 from 9 am to 3 pm.
The Museum is billed as the “largest military collection in the Southeast”. It has 50,000 square feet of animated dioramas, interactive exhibits, special audio and visual effects, and military equipment, vehicles and memorabilia. (info courtesy of the museum).
Armed Forces History Museum In Largo is at 2050 34th Way North Largo, FL. Click here for a map. They can be reached at 727-539-8371. Or click to their website here. Although I did not find much information on their website about this event.
Guest appearances for the wreath laying ceremony are by US Rep. David Jolly and Largo Mayor Woody Brown. The proceeds of the event will go towards educating local children about history. The ceremony begins at 11:50.

Visiting the Pearl Harbor Room is quite an experience with model boats from movies, video of the attack, and the sounds of war. The interactive displays will send through artifacts from WWI and WWII as well as other, more recent, conflicts like Desert Storm, and Iraq. There are vehicles for the kids to climb in and “pretend” drive.
Ticket Cost is $10/adults and $5/children.
The idea of a Memorial Day event here is to remind us all what the Memorial Day Holiday represents. So bring your kids and let them have fun and learn about why we have a Memorial Day.
Whatever you do, the Weidman Team wishes you a safe and happy Memorial Day.
