.‘Spirit of ’45’ at History Park

It’s been 75 years since Allied troops stormed the beaches of Normandy in June of 1944. A year later, in August 1945, Japan declared its intent to surrender. History Park commemorates the end of World War II this weekend with two days of 1940s-themed fanfare. Friday is swing night, featuring the brassy reverie and splashing percussion of San Jose big band The Swing Solution. The old-timey tunes return on Saturday, along with plenty of old-fashioned fun including a period-appropriate fashion show, car show and recreation of a WWII homecoming parade. Make sure to say hello to the members of the Greatest Generation who are in attendance.
