- The Back Story
On February 20, 1929, Lt.Col. Brant, Commander of Crissy Air Field in San Francisco, made a survey of three possible sites for a new airfield in Marin County. (Crissy Field suffered from poor weather conditions.) One week later, a squadron of five planes from Crissy Field landed at Marin Meadows (now our Hamilton Field).
- Complimentary Cake & Lemon-Lime Soda
1929: The Howdy Company debuted its new drink “Bib-Label Lithiated Lemon-Lime Sodas” (later renamed 7•up).
- Classic Car Showcase with The 5150 Foundation
Come see 1920-1930s vehicle showcase in the Field Museum parking lot. Don’t forget to put on your barber shop, ganster or flapper wear and take a photo with your favorite car.
- Gangster Italian food truck with Chef Rudy ~ pending confirmation
Special thanks to the Hamilton Field Museum and student and adult sing and big band performers.
