Military Museum of Texas Coming to Sugar Land
Sugar Land, TX - Sugar Land and the Military Museum of Texas will showcase a military vehicle display at Sugar Land Memorial Park, 15300 University Blvd., Saturday-Monday, May 28-30, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., in honor of Memorial Day weekend.
The display will include military jeeps, armored cars, armored personnel carriers, tanks and trucks. The Military Museum of Texas will provide educational tours throughout the day for interested park visitors. The artifacts, historical research, education and the presentation to the public of the museum’s collection of restored vehicles are the principle themes of the organization’s existence. Don’t miss the opportunity to meet the veterans who spend countless hours collecting and preserving the vehicles for displays across Texas.
The display is planned to coincide with Sugar Land’s 3rd annual Memorial Day Ceremony on Monday, May 30, at Sugar Land Memorial Park. The event begins at 10 a.m. and is intended to pay tribute to America’s brave soldiers. The ceremony will include several presentations and tributes from local community leaders. After the National Anthem, West Houston Squadron World War II-era war birds will perform a missing-man formation flyover.
Houston Marine Moms will host a donation and care package booth throughout the day, providing an opportunity for community members to contribute non-perishable items for service members deployed overseas. The Sugar Land Exchange Club will distribute U.S. flags to everyone entering the park for the Memorial Day event.
Patriotic pastries - including freshly baked French macaroons, cake pops and cupcakes - made by Sweet Boutique will be sold onsite at the “Veteran’s Corner Café.”
