Marietta's Gone with the Wind Museum Hosts Garden Party Honoring Southern ClassicSource: City of Marietta

Calling all "Gone with the Wind" aficionados! The Marietta Gone with the Wind Museum is rolling out the red carpet for a very special shindig that is bound to be as grand as Scarlett O'Hara's Tara. Set for June 8, the museum's "Costumes and the Collection: A Gone with the Wind Garden Party" is primed to offer a full day of Southern charm, from speakers to lawn games to a "Windie Waltz," complete with photo ops and a Grand Bazaar for the ultimate fan memorabilia, according to the City of Marietta official website.

For those looking to add a dash of historical glamour to their weekend plans, this event promises to deliver with an exhibiting of new costumes and a treasure trove of rare items freshly bequeathed by the Margaret Mitchell Estate. Door swings open at 10 a.m. and doesn't close until 3 p.m. for what's shaping up to be five hours worth of homage to the iconic tale of love and turmoil during the Civil War era. And for the peckish, box lunches are available for a lick – but they require an early snag for $15 a pop.

In true Southern style, the museum, nestled in the picturesque confines of the Historic Brumby Hall and Gardens at 472 Powder Springs Street, Marietta, GA, is inviting guests to immerse themselves in a bygone era. Whip out your smartphones or old-school cameras; this event is tailor-made to flood your social channels with throwback allure. Tickets to history can be had for $10 each and are available for purchase through the Marietta Gone with the Wind Museum's online store.

If your curiosity is piqued and you need more details on this stroll down memory lane, just head over to the Marietta Gone with the Wind Museum website. Whether you are a die-hard "Windie" or simply in the mood for a dose of vintage festivity, this garden party is calling your name. Just be sure to leave your hoop skirt at home – unless, of course, you're going for full-blown authenticity, in which case, mint julep in hand, why not? After all, tomorrow is another day.
