Experience the sights and sounds of World War II when the Commemorative Air Force (CAF) Dixie Wing hosts the 13th Annual WWII Heritage Days April 22-23, 2017
The event will be held Saturday and Sunday 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM at the CAF Dixie Wing Historical Airpower Facility, Falcon Field. We bring together re-enactors, WWII vehicles, vintage aircraft, authors, WWII Veterans and exhibits as a living history experience for the entire family. “WWII Heritage Days” is a community celebration that will entertain and educate the entire family.
The weekend will again feature vintage aircraft, period vehicles, education displays, guest speakers and demonstrations, including mock battles between reenactors portraying Allied and Axis troops. Check the Program Schedule for planned activities. Local actors and singers will impersonate 1940’s celebrities and perform 1940′s musical hits throughout the weekend.
Saturday will conclude with “Keep ‘em Flying”, a WWII-theme hangar dance featuring the Peachtree Jazz Edition. Proceeds from the dance benefit historic aircraft preservation and “Education Through Living History”, the group’s WWII history program made available to schools and youth groups free of charge.
Sunday morning will begin with a jeep-top religious service familiar to millions of American servicemen during and since the Second World War.
Admission for “WWII Heritage Days” is a suggested donation of $10 for adults, $5 for children 11 to 17. Children 10 and under, WWII veterans, and uniformed military are admitted free. “WWII Heritage Days” will be held rain or shine. Please no pets.
