Aberdeen Proving Ground Invites The Public To Its First-Ever Demonstration Day
HAVRE DE GRACE - Have you ever sat up, startled, wondering what precisely is causing those thunderous booms at Aberdeen Proving Ground? Here's your chance to see it first-hand.
Aberdeen Proving Ground is opening its doors to the public for its first-ever Demonstration Day this coming Saturday at the U.S. Army Aberdeen Test Center's Live Fire Area.
Demonstration Day is an initiative designed to offer the public an insightful, interactive experience into the diverse career fields within the Army and the missions conducted by the APG community. This unique event is free of charge and open to all, commencing at 11 a.m.
Attendees can anticipate a day filled with activities, including an Exploration Zone with an array of small displays and demonstrations, various vehicle exhibitions, performances by the Army Drill Team, and even a flyover from the remarkable A-10 Thunderbolt II.
At 3 p.m., a ticketed Live Fire Show will be staged, offering an up-close view of APG's testing capabilities. Although the tickets for the Live Fire Show have already been claimed, those present in the Exploration Zone will still experience the resonating sounds and vibrations of the explosives. For those unable to attend, the Live Fire Demo will be broadcast live on the APG Facebook page.
Individuals who do not possess a current Department of Defense identification are advised to use the Maryland Boulevard (Route 715) Gate for entry to Aberdeen Proving Ground. Please note that all vehicle passengers aged 18 years and older must present valid photo identification. For additional information, visit the event's webpage.
