Annual historic festival returns to Peachtree City

March 18, 2017 by  

The 14th annual WWII Heritage Days festival is taking place over two days next month in Peachtree City.

In addition to celebrating the culture of the 1940s, this year will also be acknowledging the 75th anniversary of the Doolittle Raid and Battle of Midway. Guests are encouraged to dress in the fashion of the era.

A variety of different activities will take place over the two-day festival. The first event will be the Hangar Dance, for which this year’s theme is ‘Keep ‘em Flying’. Guests will enjoy dinner and dancing to the music of Peachtree Jazz Edition. Tickets are $55 until April 17 and $65 after, or $100 per couple.

Other events will include a silent auction, antique cars, militaria exhibits, and vintage aircraft. In addition, historic reenactors will be strolling around. One popular activity returning this year is warbird rides, where visitors can fly in actual historic aircraft. Ticket prices for this vary and start at $150.

It is likely that organizers will be working with a Peachtree City poster printing firm to help advertise this popular event.

The WWII Heritage Days festival will be held at Atlanta Regional Airport from April 22 to 23. The Hangar Dance will take place on April 22 beginning at 6:00 PM at the CAF Dixie Wing Historical Air Power Facility. Visit the official website to learn more.
