Dreadful Pestilence: Yellow Fever in Savannah 1820

Davenport House Museum presents Dreadful Pestilence: YELLOW FEVER IN SAVANNAH 1820
- living history presentation
When: Friday and Saturday nights in October 2014
DATES: October 3, 4, 10, 11, 17, 18, 24, 25 and 31
TWO PERFORMANCES: 7:30 p.m. and 8:45 p.m.

Length of program: 60 minutes
Description: Participants in the living history performance experience the story of yellow fever’s dreadful consequences which transformed the bustling seaport of Savannah into a ghost town. The action commences with a war of words between competing local newspapers on the fever’s outbreak and the municipal action that follows. Moving through the house and garden by candlelight, visitors observe the 19th century inhabitants as their thoughts turn to the contemplation of their own mortality and witness a doctor’s treatment of a fever victim. In an area seldom seen by visitors, the fate and experiences of the uncounted half to the city’s population, both free and enslaved Africans, are revealed. As a culmination each visitor will participate in a “Lottery of Life and Death.”
Additionally: 2014 will be the last year this program will be presented to the general public.
Not suitable for children under 8 years of age.
The performance requires that guests be able to walk up and down stairs and maneuver in the candlelit rooms.

Time: 7:30 p.m. and 8:45 p.m.

Levy Jewelers Red, White & Blue Balloon Festival

Levy Jewelers Red, White & Blue Balloon Festival
November 1-2, 2014
Hunter Army Air Field, Savannah, Georgia

An event for the entire family, the Levy Jewelers Red, White and Blue Balloon Festival promises something for everyone, including a weekend of hot air balloons, music, comedy, food and vendors.

Admission to all events is a donation to the soldiers and their families stationed at Hunter Army Air Field and Fort Stewart. Those 17 and older must have a valid ID. Current registration and insurance is required for all vehicles, as well. Enter through the Rio Road and Montgomery Street gates. Outside food, bags, coolers and pets are not permitted. Weapons of any type also are prohibited.

“Levy Jewelers, Savannah’s fourth-generation family-owned jeweler, is proud to be the premier sponsor of such a great community event to honor our soldiers,” said Lowell Kronowitz, the company’s president.

Each morning the hot air balloons will inflate at Hunter Army Air Field. Attendees are invited to walk among the six- and seven-story balloons as they inflate to offer tethered rides. Saturday night, the balloons will return to the field for a balloon glow, where they will be tethered and their burners lit to create an awe-inspiring light show. Festivities also include comedians and music. As an added treat, children are invited to wear their Halloween costumes and trick or treat between the glowing hot air balloons.

Tethered balloon rides will be offered to allow the experience of flying in a hot air balloon while being tethered to the ground. The cost is $5 per person. Rides are limited to the first 400 people each morning.

A special surprise are the odd-shapes balloons. Hot air balloons are generally round. But a new breed of balloon is stealing the hearts and imagination of kids. We are privileged to have five special shaped balloons. Participants will see a clown, the Purple People Eater, a skunk. Eddie Rickenbacker and Hagar the Horrible.

On stage Saturday night is the Savannah Steel Drum Band, Comic Bob Lauver and Hear & Now with John Tisbert.
Presenting sponsors for the event are: Levy Jewelers, WTOC, Cumulus, South Magazine. Balloon sponsors: ReMax Savannah, Georgia Southern University, Savannah Mall, Amerigas, City of Hinesville, Tanger Outlets, JCB, Inc., Pepsi, CAT and Memorial Health University Medical Center For more information.
