1. Re: Any updates on this past Rememberence weekend/Ball?

Hey larilu,

I went to the Remembrance Day weekend events, parade and two balls.

The weather was....fantastic....temps in the mid-50's during the day, no rain so not too cold at all for being outside. It lasted about one hour for all the re-enactor groups to march through. I thought the streets would be mobbed with people but they were not...at least not on Baltimore St. which is where our grop was walking up and down. I was told by some locals that the crowds were light this year so there was plenty of open space on the sidewalks for viewing the parade. It was my first time to attend these events.

Me and a friend attended two balls, one friday night and one saturday night, both at the Gettysburg Hotel on the square. We were two women without escorts that went to the ball. We were decked out in our early 1860's style ball dresses. The friday night ball hosted by Civil War Lady we enjoyed very much. The hotel ballroom was lovely and not crowded at all. Some men in attendance graciously asked us to dance. It was alot of fun. The ball on saturday night was very crowded, hardly any room for mingling as all the dances took up the entire room, you could hardly get in or out of the room. We did not enjoy this one as much becuause it was two crowded and hardly any place to sit. We would definitly go to the friday night ball again hosted by Civil War Lady. Both balls had live bands playing period music. We enjoyed the experience very much.

If anyone has more questions about the event please ask.
