History Alive Weekend
Sept. 26-27, 5:30pm Friday Night; All-Day Saturday
Gainesville Municipal Airport
Camp Howze MVPA will be bringing in front of the public an event that will be fun and educational right here on a WWII Military Base grounds of Camp Howze. There will be everything from Living Historians accurately dressed in period uniforms and campsites just as they were in the 40’s, to Military Trucks, Tanks, Vintage Aircraft and Equipment roaming about the property and the skies. You will get up close to them all, and then see a WWII Battle Reenactment unfold in front of your eyes as if you was in Europe in 1944!
This event will be the first for Gainesville Texas; but with our Community’s Patriotism, the local WWII history in and around Gainesville, and the large collection of Military Vehicles and Living Historians is sure to be an event highly sought after. This event is also completely Free Admission and Free Parking for the Public Saturday. Event is located next to the airport on FM 1201 just off Hwy 82 West. Friday night at the base there will be dinner, door prizes, a raffle, WWII entertainment with The Gainesville Swing Orchestra PLUS a Bob Hope Impersonator
