The Spirit of Tulsa Squadron of the Commemorative Air Force (CAF) will hold its annual “Keep Em’ Flying Hangar Dance” at 6 p.m. November 7 at the Tulsa Technology Center’s Riverside Campus, 801 E. 91st St.
Many who go to the dance dress in World War II-era uniforms or costumes. A new sound system has been installed for the dance. This is the largest event of its kind in the nation, according to Rita Robbins of The Oklahoma Swing Syndicate (TOSS).
The event features a World War II experience that includes authentic warbirds by the dance floor; a vintage soda and candy canteen (courtesy of POPs in Edmond); a World War II newsreel theater; an antique radio exhibit; a nose art exhibit; dogfighting simulations in a World War II Warbird Simulator (provided by Aces Alley); a silent auction, a vintage sale and more.
Music will be provided by the Sounds of Music Orchestra and free swing dance lessons will be available (courtesy of TOSS).
Dance tickets are $35 in advance or at the door. Proceeds go toward maintenance and restoration of the organization’s historic flying warbirds plus educational programs.
Tickets are available at www.caftulsa.org. Call 918-381-0805 or e-mail email@example.com for more information.
