Gathering of the Rosies

In 2015, a group of over 2,000 women dressed as Rosie the Riveter descended upon Willow Run in Ypsilanti and earned a Guinness World record as the largest gathering of Rosies to take place since WWII. A year later, a California group with a little over 100 more women took the title. Now, a group of Michigan women will once again gather at the former bomber plant, where the original Rosie, Rose Will Monroe, worked as a riveter building B-24 bombers for the U.S. Air Force, to reclaim the title. Rosies are asked to don blue work clothes (a work shirt tucked into work pants or a jumpsuit), red socks, work shoes (no high heels, flip flops, or the like), and a red bandana with white polka dots (no paisley).

Doors open at 9 a.m., arrive by 11 a.m. to be counted; 799 N. Hewitt Rd., Ypsilanti; 734-483-4030;; free.
