Battlin’ Betties 2nd Annual Bay City D-Day Event

June 8, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm


Join us between 10 AM and 5 PM as the beautiful ladies from the Battlin’ Betties Michigan Platoon invade the Saginaw Valley Naval Ship Musuem for their second annual D-Day event. Throughout the day we will have a live band and DJ switching back and forth to keep you hopping and moving. There will be an ice cream truck on site to help keep you cool. The ladies will even be sponsoring a blood drive on site!

The USS Edson will be open for tours during the event.

At 2 PM watch the ladies compete for Miss Bay City and at 3 PM watch the men battle for the Best Beard of Bay City.

But wait! The fun doesn’t have to end at 5 PM!

The USS Edson will be open for a PUBLIC OVERNIGHT STAY! That’s right, you can join some of the ladies and spend the night exploring the USS Edson. Bring your own bedding and sleep on the same bunks that the Edson Sailors once called theirs. Pre-registration and payment in full is required for the overnight stay.

There will be no admission for the events taking place on the musuem grounds, however regular admission will be charged to tour the ship ($10 for adults, $8 for children 4-17, 3 and under are free) and may be purchased the day of the event. Overnight prices are $50 per person and will include admission to the ship all day as well as a pizza dinner at 6 PM. You may pre-purchase your overnight tickets below.

For information on how to participate in the Pin Up contest, Best Beard Contest, or to be a vendor, please contact Morgan at battlinbettiesmi@gmail.com.
