Antique military vehicle convoy stop in Ligonier to Celebrate Anniversary.
August 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the USA ARMY planned motor convoy of various military vehicles across the country on what was then the new Lincoln Highway. The original caravan began at the Ellipse, in Washington, D.C., and ended at Lincoln Park in San Francisco, California. To celebrate this monumental drive, the Military Vehicle Preservation Association is recreating this convoy with as many as 70 historic military vehicles traveling the same route. Due to our town’s unique geographic position along the Lincoln Highway, this convoy will be making a stop in Ligonier on August 13. The caravan will drive through town in parade fashion between 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. Due to the nature of these vehicles, we cannot be sure of a specific time. The convoy will then park in the Loyalhanna Street Parking lot. The military vehicles will be on display as the convoy members enjoy time at Fort Ligonier, the Lincoln Highway Experience and the town! Make sure to be here to witness this historic drive!
