Long after the Wall Street crash of 1929, the Jazz Age remains an iconic era characterized by groundbreaking music, cutting-edge fashions and a burgeoning youth culture that redefined American society. The Roaring Twenties Lawn Party is a fabulous fête that channels our sentimental longing for the past into a two-part event. The California Feetwarmers headline the daytime portion, while Janet Klein & Her Parlor Boys take over during the second part, at night. Charleston lessons, exhibitions and a solo dance contest provide plenty of people-watching and vintage-fashion photo ops, while a tarot-card reader, interwar-inspired vendor village, unlimited merry-go-round rides and costume contests deliver other delightful diversions. If the wistful affection of a bygone era should become too much, just remember we're only a few years away from witnessing a brand-new '20s of our own.
