The IX Center opens its military exhibition this week. Via Cleveland.com:
Rare tanks, Howitzer guns, historic military planes and hundreds of swap meet tables with thousands of items of memorabilia and vendors will be together under one roof for the first time at this month's World of Tanks Cleveland Tank Plant Homecoming Military Show and Swap Meet, which runs from June 22-24 at the I-X Center.
The former tank plant, which has been converted into the largest exhibition space in the United States, played a key role in producing heavy equipment used in battles in Korea and Vietnam in addition to arming American allies. Its historic role in the country's history led to the selection as the host of the 42nd annual Military Vehicle Preservation Association convention and the homecoming military show and swap meet.
Bill Perrien, Executive Vice President for the I-X Center, said the event is unmatched in scale and scope.
"There's something here for everyone from former employees of the tank plant, veterans, people with interest in military history, right down to the kids — boys and girls are fascinated with tanks and military machines."
