World War II Weekend rolls into Berwick

    World War II Weekend rolls into Berwick

    BERWICK, COLUMBIA COUNTY (WOLF) -- This weekend... you can take a step back in time.

    The 3rd annual World War II Weekend is all set up in Berwick, down at Test Track Park.

    They say the idea is to give people a feel for what it was like on the war front in the 1940's.

    There are war camps set up, for both U.S. and German forces, and military vehicles.

    With over 350 reenactors this year, there will be weapons and demonstrations and other war-time stations.

    'Lady Lois' will be on full display, one of over 15,000 tanks built in 1942 at Berwick's American Car and Foundry, which was contracted to provide tanks for the United States and allies in the war against Germany and Japan.

    It's also completely free to the public - thanks to about 50 different sponsors.

    There will also be food vendors, live music and a swing dance.

    "It's one thing to read it in a book, but it's another thing to actually come and see what soldiers would bring with them when they're traveling to different countries, what women had to do as an effort at home to help fuel on the war effort as well," said Kristen Bogash, Event Coordinator.

    The event goes through Sunday. You can find more information you can visit the Stuart Tank Memorial Association's Facebook page.
