This week Nashville has been taken over by Marines!
Don’t fret! Nashville is hosting Marine Week from September 7-11. There will be many different events and activities for the entire family to enjoy. There will be school visits, various performances, workouts, story time, a parade and so much more! You can see the full schedule here.
Marine Week is hosted in one city each year to celebrate Community, Country, and Corps. During the week, you’ll be able to interact with actual Marines.
We had the privilege of checking out the static displays that will be downtown for the entire week. They had helicopters, tanks, cannons, and other equipment that Marines use in the field. The hands-on experience was incredible. My son was beyond excited to get to climb in helicopters, pretend to drive tanks, drive the rovers, and even use the metal detector. Every Marine we spoke with was super helpful and eager to teach us about their machinery.
These displays will be open every day through Sunday. Make sure to see what other events your family may enjoy.
