Wings Over Courtland is a celebration of the town's role in World War II and honors all Veterans and Rosies from the surrounding area. With an active airbase, the town of Courtland contributed much to the air war and success of the Allied forces.
Many activities are usually included in the line up for this special day. After a morning walking tour, you can take a stroll back in time with the stores exhibiting 1940's displays, see the 48 star flags flying, watch a parade as period vehicles line the streets. Join in as we honor the Rosies and veterans. Talk with them and hear their personal accounts, face to face, in first person. Shop at the many vendors, get your picture made on the paper moon, enjoy old fashioned candies and coke in the glass bottle while listening to songs of the era. Listen to educational programs throughout the day to learn of life affected by war.
Many attendees dress in fashions of the time, and everyone is invited to participate in a period fashion show. The evening entertainment usually includes: dinner and a USO styled show, followed by a swing dance under the stars. You can even take dance lessons to prepare for the evening dance under the stars. This is truly a remarkable celebration and involves the local Courtland downtown square as well as the actual Courtland Air Force Base, where air shows are held and other fun activities occur!
