A giant M60 Tank, along with other vehicles used in the television show “The Walking Dead” and a Monster Truck will be on display from Doug Cole Motorsports. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation Bomb Squad Truck will be there again, compete with robot demonstrations for children. Come see the WSB Skycopter Lounge and Capt.
