  • A spectacular parachute show by the U.S. Army Parachute Team -- the Golden Knights
  • STEM activities such as 3D Printing, flying drones, model rocket building, TransOption's Model Car
  • Scout activities such as log rolling, human foosball, extreme obstacle course,  archery, tomohawk throwing, backwoods engineering, paint ball target shoot, climbing walls
  • Exhibitions for Summit Bechtel Reserve, Northern Tier, Philmont Scout Ranch and Florida Sea Base
  • Stuff from Pictatinny Arsenal and the Liberty Science Center
  • Police boats, K9 units, Coast Guard boats, Fire Dept. equipment, State Police equipment
  • And much, much more
