May 30 TANKFEST NORTHWEST
FHC’s TankFest Northwest allows families to see and hear real combat vehicles drive and fire.
This year’s lineup includes German artillery pieces, an American Sherman tank, German Hetzer tank destroyer, U.S. Army Stuart light tank, and dozens of other military vehicles. Each machine will perform for the crowds in the FHC’s Tank Arena.
Strongman Mark Kirsch will attempt to simultaneously pull a Soviet T-34/85 tank and 20-ton truck. The total weight will be roughly 57 tons, which has never been attempted before. The truck, loaned by Dick’s Towing, weighs 20 tons. The Soviet World War II era battle tank, part of the FHC’s collection, weighs another 37 tons.
