Road To Tara Museum Teams Up with Atlanta Braves & Margaret Mitchell House

Jonesboro, Ga. - The Road to Tara Museum will team up with the Atlanta Braves, Margaret Mitchell House and Atlanta History Center on Saturday, July 2 to celebrate Gone With The Wind night at Turner Field.

Commemorating the 75th Anniversary of the world's best-selling novel, fans who attend the Braves vs. Baltimore Orioles game dressed as their favorite Gone With The Wind character will be given $10 off Upper Box or Outfield Pavilion tickets.  In addition, the first 1,000 fans through Turner Field's gates will receive a free admission voucher for the Road to Tara Museum in Jonesboro ($7 value).  Housed in an 1867 train depot, the Road to Tara Museum showcases original film props and costume pieces, reproduction costumes, foreign edition library, the Herb Bridges collection of Gone With The Wind Memorabilia and more.

Braves fans can also get in on the action by participating in Gone With The Wind trivia, a Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara look-alike contest, learning how to dance the Virginia Reel, and posing for photos with civil war re-enactors.  Fans will want to be sure to keep their July 2 Braves ticket stub and present it at the Atlanta History Center or Margaret Mitchell House to receive $5 off admission.
