World War II Weekend Preview

Don't forget we have a World War II encampment and mock battle coming up the weekend of May 5 and 6. We've just confirmed the headliner band as the Society Music Makers, who are a 17-piece big band. You may have seen them locally at one of the "concert in the park" series in the area. They will be performing in the big, newly landscaped event tent on the grounds of Graeme Park at 2:00 pm and visitors can sit around a table and enjoy the music or take to the dance floor and show off their lindy or their jive moves.

Opening for the Society Music Makers at 1:30 pm will be the Fubar Boys, who are members of the 9th Division WWII Preservation Society. They're sure to have you remembering the good ol' days and toe-tapping along. You can view sample videos by linking to their site or this one from YouTube, below.

We didn't get any video of last year's reenacted battle, but this one from Fort Indiantown Gap involves a lot of the same units and was taken in 2010. Feel free to skip ahead - it's loooong, but better quality than most.

For the full schedule, see our previous post here.
