From their event page:
This action-packed weekend has fun activities for the entire family! There will be demonstrations and activities throughout the day. View historic military vehicles up close or take a ride in a WWII tank or Half-Track in between the demonstrations! You can start or end your day by browsing through the militaria vendors to take home a small piece of history!
Get your ticket early! The first 500 early bird ticket sales will be entered into a drawing to ride in a WWII tank! The drawing will be held on Wednesday, March 22 at 7 PM and winners will be notified by email.
If you do not want to rely on Lady Luck, the first four Tank ride times on both Saturday and Sunday are available for pre-purchase beginning March 1, 2023. All remaining ride times will be sold first come the day of the event!
Gates open at 9:00 AM on both days. Saturday hours will be 10 AM – 5 PM and Sunday hours will be 10 AM – 3 PM (last entrance 2 hours before close). Come early and stay all day! You will not want to miss anything. Food vendors will be on-site to make sure no one goes hungry!

Free Parking at Santa’s Wonderland’s Blitzen lot!
Included with the admission ticket is a ride in a WWII 2 1/2 ton CCKW, or an LMTV or modern HUMVEE to the demonstration fields where all of the activities will take place.
