WWII Weekend near Lancaster, PA


As you walk down the runway, the sounds and smells of war surround you. You are taken back to a time that will live forever throughout our history. What event are we talking about? World War Two weekend at the Mid Atlantic Air Museum in Reading Pa, will be taking place the weekend of June 3-5. Located near Adamstown Inns & Cottages, a Lancaster PA bed and breakfast, you will travel back in time to experience first hand, what the “greatest generation” endured.

Be prepared to experience the insight of guest speakers, live world war 2 reenacting, world war 2 planes (including rides), and a taste of life in a combat zone. From Europe to the Pacific, reenactors from all over the world, come together to appreciate the rich history of this memorable period of world war ii. The aviation museum is open to showcase weapons, uniforms, equipment, veterans groups, and models. You’ll still hear the tanks and artillery pieces being fired outside, but you’ll be safe from the opposing forces.

You will span the world war 2 timeline as you experience battles and skirmishes in the French Village, visit encampments, and shop the military flea market for weapons, uniforms, and 40s era clothing (original and reproduction). Many people buy outfits to dress up for the big dance in the hangar come Friday and Saturday evenings. Once the radio shows turn to music, you’ll forget that you’re in Berks County, and be transported back to the 40’s for a swinging good time!

There’s no doubt that you’ll learn lots about world war two history while having fun! However, you will need your rest, at a luxury bed and breakfast, each evening before returning to the encampments of the second world war.
