Event Description

The public can watch a World War I battle demonstration, highlighting military tactics used by German and Allied forces between 1914 and 1918, at Fort Harrison State Park, May 4.

The third annual event is sponsored by the Museum of 20th Century Warfare and the park staff. It will be outside regardless of weather.

The event is free after the normal gate fee of $5 per in-state vehicle and $7 per out-of-state vehicle.
