One of the most patriotic things you can do this Memorial Day Weekend is to join the Evansville Wartime Museum's 5th Anniversary Celebration. This Saturday, May 28, 2022, you have the opportunity to ride in a few different and very unique airplanes. Local pilots will be volunteering their time and planes to raise money for the Evansville Wartime Museum.

The celebration will include live music, food & drinks, plus very special historic displays.

Forest Gottman is the Executive Director of the Evansville Wartime Museum
