Convoy of military vehicles to make stop in Tunica this fall
Tunica County will have the honor of being one of only two stops in the entire state of Mississippi for this fall’s re-enactment by the Military Vehicles Preservation Association of the 1920 U.S. Army Transcontinental Motor Convoy on the Bankhead Highway.
A convoy of about 150 antique and modern military vehicles will leave Washington, D.C. September 19 and complete its cross continent journey on October 17 in San Diego, CA. The motorcade will reach Tunica County on September 29, entering on Old Highway 61 North, traveling south to the Tunica Arena, and stopping here for about four hours to allow people to view the vehicles up close and visit with the drivers.
“The convoy will be at the arena for about four hours,” Tunica Museum director Dick Taylor told Lions Club members recently. “We are asking clubs, businesses and individuals to volunteer and contribute to feed a lunch to the convoy participants and their support group.
