Vehicle and weapons demonstrations will be held at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Friday and noon and 3 p.m. Saturday and will feature firing canons, machine guns and flamethrowers.

As part of the convention, a 50-vehicle convoy will leave the Expo Center at 1 p.m Saturday for the first of seven legs of a cross-country trip. More than 100 military vehicles will take part in the trip over 37 days, mostly along  Lincoln Highway/Route 30 for a journey that will end at Lincoln Park in San Francisco.
