The Washington Town & Country Fair is proud to welcome the 9-11 Never Forget Mobile Exhibit to this year’s fair, August 2-6. The exhibit is a high-tech, 53-foot tractor- trailer, which unfolds into a 1,000 square foot exhibit. It serves as a poignant reminder of that tragic day. It includes artifacts such as steel beams from the towers, documentary videos, recordings of first responder radio transmissions and live tours by FDNY firefighters.
The exhibit will be escorted into Washington on Tuesday, August 1st at 10:30 a.m. Local Fire, Police, and EMS crews will be participating in the procession, as well as 100+ Freedom Riders. The exhibit will enter Washington on MO-100 at approximately 10:30 a.m. after being joined by the escort team at N-Sports. Fair Chairman Joe Maniaci encourages all who are able to stand along the route with flags and patriotic clothing to welcome the exhibit to Washington.
Exhibit Route to Fairgrounds: Entering town on MO-100 from N-Sports. MO-100 to Fifth Street. Fifth to High Street. High to Front. Front onto Tiemann, entering the fairgrounds through the South Gate.
