How To Celebrate The 50th Anniversary Of The Apollo 11 Launch In Huntsville


Ray Pearman Lincoln has long been part of the Huntsville, Alabama, community — long enough, in fact, that we were around for — and at — the launch of the Apollo 11 that landed on the moon back in 1969. We are looking forward to the 50-year milestone this summer.

Here’s how you can join us and the community to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch in Huntsville during the week of the launch:

  •          Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Celebration Launch Day: This event takes place at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and will be the city’s biggest celebration event. Learn more here.
  •          Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Guinness Book of World Records Rocket Launch: Wake up early for this 8:32 a.m. event at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center, where 5,000 model rockets will be launched simultaneously. Learn more here.
  •          Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Homecoming Celebration Dinner & Program: This event takes place at 5 p.m. on July 16 but is unfortunately sold out already. If you have tickets, get more details on the event here.
  •          Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Dancing in the Streets: On July 19, from 6-10 p.m., head to Downtown Huntsville to join friends and family by partying in the streets with live music representing the last five decades, a projection experience, and signature cocktails. The event is free. Learn more here.

Ray Pearman Lincoln is proud of the Huntsville community and seeing how much the community has flourished since the Apollo 11 launch half-a-century ago.
