AQUINO TANK WEEKEND

Fri, 27 May to Sun, 29 May 2016

   
 

So you and a few thousand other visitors thought that last year's Aquino Tank Day was something to behold? Well, hold on to your SABOT rounds because this year, we're bringing you an entire weekend of events starting Friday evening, 27 May.

 

The theme of this year's event should be obvious: We're commemorating and celebrating the 150th Anniversary of The Ontario Regiment (RCAC), the very unit we exist to honour. The Ontarios are one of Canada's most senior and oldest continuously serving Reserve armoured regiments.

 

But that's not all...

 

In addition, we'll also be commemorating the 25th Anniversary of the 1990-91 Gulf War in which Canada and our Allies including the United States and Britain, played a role.

 

Some very special guests will be on hand, including serving and retired soldiers, veterans and equipment from the Gulf War era, also known as Operation Friction by Canadian Forces, Operation Desert Shield (US Forces), and Operation Granby (Britain), will also be on hand.

 

Although our final plans for the weekend are still under wraps, here's a brief rundown of what you can expect:

Friday, 27 May 2016 - Media event and night shoot.

You'll see several of our vehicles in a firepower demonstration (blank rounds of course).

 

Saturday, 28 May 2016 - Live vehicle demonstrations, re-enactments and tank rides culminating in second annual LIVE SHOW.

 

Saturday, 29 May 2016 - Live vehicle demonstrations, re-enactments and tank rides culminating in second annual LIVE SHOW, with a knock out finale.

You won't want to miss this very special weekend. More details including timings, admission, and more will be announced later this winter.

 

Meantime, have a look at this video to see what happened at last year's inaugural Aquino Day -- with commentary from Ontario's favourite police personality, ex-Ontario Provincial Police Sergeant and current CP24 reporter Cam Woolley.
