Fourth of July to be observed with a display of operational armor from the Museum of American Armor in the Massapequa Park Parade

To mark the Fourth of July, armor vehicles from the Museum of American Armor at Old Bethpage Village Restoration, will be participating in the Massapequa Park Parade for the ninth consecutive year, hosting military living historians and veterans as the nation observes its birthday.

Forming up at Lake Shore Drive by 9:00 a.m., the column will proceed to Park Avenue and the community’s business district where it will take the salute of public officials before returning to the museum. An annual tradition, armor’s parade participation underscores the museum’s mission of paying tribute to those who have defended our freedoms over the generations.

The Museum of American Armor, 1303 Round Swamp Road, Old Bethpage, is inside the grounds of Old Bethpage Village Restoration and is open year  around, Wednesday through Sunday, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Admission donations are $10 for adults, $7 for seniors, veterans and children.
