A turn-of-the-century Traveling Circus tops the list of attractions and includes vintage performers, carnival games, and train rides.  Visitors can flap and Lindy Hop through the 1920’s at the Gatsby Garden Party where professional dancers will set the stage. Step into a prohibition speak-easy where a secret password is the ticket to Crazy Rhythm live jazz and cabaret featuring the Satin Dollz. The Queen Mary’s salute to the 1940’s and WWII will showcase Peter Jacobs Wartime Revue and live performances by the USO Dollz and the Swingin’ Hollywood Hot Shots.

The decades roll-on with the Nifty Fifty Drive-In Diner playing authentic 50s jukebox hits, Motor City Magic live on stage paying tribute to Motown’s greatest, the Disco Kings groovin’ through the 70s and a day flow 80s arcade. Round out the century with a 90s laser tag rave and Country music tailgate. Themed dining, era-specific libations, strolling entertainers, and family activities add to the All-American 4th of July splendor.

The Queen Mary will celebrate America with a unique take on the classic July 4th holiday by highlighting the best of traditional American entertainment decade by decade. Throughout the day, the air will fill with the sounds of Big Band, Swing, Pop, and Rock while the decks become alive with vintage style entertainment, live performance acts, and summer games. In honor of Independence Day, uniformed Active Duty Military men and women will be admitted free of charge.

They are transforming all decks of the ship into a ‘time machine,’ with each new era marked by a change in music and programming. Guests will reminisce Independence Day in bygone eras while still being able to enjoy today’s popular music and entertainment. Fun for the whole family.

Beginning at noon, the iconic Long Beach attraction will throwback to the last century with a take on The Golden Age, which coincides with the ‘hey-day of transatlantic travel.’ This period is of special significance to The Queen Mary which embarked upon its Maiden Voyage during the 1930s. Amusement and entertainment will include a stilt-walking Uncle Sam, Bingo and golden era games and characters, the Lil’ Big Band, a barbershop quartet, and will conclude with the not-to-be-missed California Foot Stompers.

The mid-century celebration kicks up its heels with vintage games and entertainment from the Andrew Sisters to the Pointer Sisters, concluding with a Beatles Tribute Band. Popular area DJs will spin Disco grooves and tail-shakers from the 70s, 80s and 90s, while date-appropriate games, amusements, libations, and treats are served up. The session concludes with the Mike Vitale Band performing favorites of the period.

The festive spirit of activities, touring, dining, shopping, and dancing will crescendo with one of the most highly touted 4th of July Firework displays in Southern California. And bringing the Independence Day celebration to close, guests can exercise their freedom of choice to wind down with a patriotic movie under the stars on the open air Sports Deck or to rev up under the musical spell of local DJs.
