Rosie rally and festival coming up
This year's Rosie Rally Home Front Festival, celebrating the legacy of women across the world, takes place Saturday, August 10, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Craneway Pavilion, Ford Assembly Plant, 1414 Harbour Way South in Richmond.
Organized with support of the Rosie the Riveter WWII Home Front National Historic Park in Richmond, the free, family-friendly event sponsored by the Rosie the Riveter Trust will include costume contests and other activities.
There won't be an attempt to set the Guinness record for the most Rosies this year, but attendees are encouraged to update Rosie, represent home front occupations in creative ways, or don traditional Rosie garb.
This year's festival will honor original World War II Rosies and home front workers as well as celebrate ordinary people from many backgrounds, races, and communities across the U.S. who stepped up to extraordinary challenges during the war, according to an email announcement.
New this year will also be ferry service from San Francisco. For more information, visit https://sanfranciscobayferry.com/news/richmond-weekend-ferry-service-2019 . For more information on the Rosie festival, visit http://www.rosietheriveter.org/events/rosie-rally .
