Obviously, to really set the tone for an era specific event, it's great if participants and gate guests do their best to dress in period attire. Now we want you there! If you are coming as you normally dress, Fine! Please come to the show, you will enjoy yourself immensely! If though, you are a bit adventurous, and have the ability or the opportunity to find some period specific attire, please wear it to the show. We are trying to make this a 'time tunnel trip" back to the first half of the last Century, and we build sets and have the vehicles and entertainment to help you 'get that!' But you can help that effort by dressing up in the attire of the past and have a blast, doing it. There are all sorts of vintage clothing stores and Good Will and Salvation Army stores that can make it easy, and affordable.
In fact take a look at old movies and how people dressed, maybe pick a favorite movie character! Gowns, or picknic dress, or Flapper dress like the 'It' Girl. Or a Chaplin Tramp, or Bogart as Sam Spade, or Rick from Casablanca. Maybe Buck Rogers, Roy Rodgers, or Ginger Rodgers! Top Hat, or Boater, or White Stetson. Opportunity is knockin' for your imagination to flourish at 'your' show.
Check out their web site, and join them in preserving a wonderful stylish part of the American past.
