  1. sounds like so much fun…esp. when the community comes together to paint the town in 1940s garb……this reminds me of Governor’s Island in New York during the Jazz Age Lawn Parties hosted by Michael Arenella & His Dreamland Orchestra – where a lot of people do make an effort to evoke the era in authentic or 1920s inspired attire
