Dressed as the iconic «Rosie» participants will attempt to defend (and break!) the Guinness World Record for «The Largest Gathering of People Dressed as a Rosie the Riveter.” The record now stands at 2,229 Rosies- Help us to defend the record and make history (again!) We Can Do It!

The Home Front Festival, from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., will feature the Potomac, Franklin D. Roosevelt's famous yacht, docked adjacent to the festival site; an air craft cockpit display from the USS Hornet; the East Bay Regional Parks’ Mobile Ranger Unit and ranger programs; multiple fun, hands-on activities for children; an historical display from Angel Island; and information on Victory Gardens from the UC Master Gardeners’ program, as well as other exhibitors. Also on hand will be a 1940s bus from the Pacific Bus Museum along with military vehicles from the American Armory Museum, including a replica of General Patton's Command Car. Food trucks will offer a variety of ethnic cuisines along with vendors selling Rosie-the-Riveter-themed items and other parks and 1940s-era products.
