2016 1940’s Ball Video!

Other fun happenings at the 2017 Ball…

Swing dancers will heat up the dance floor under a canopy of movie set lights while cigarette girls hand out rations.  Attendees will have the opportunity to have their photos taken with WWII planes and military vehicles,  stop by the Tango Tango club tent or the “Cantina” tent, enter the 1940’s costume contest and dance the night away in a Conga Line!  And to top the night off in grand style we’ll announce the end of the war with an authentic 1940’s radio announcement complete with a confetti drop and celebration! 


Come enjoy Boulder Airport’s summer beauty with good friends, good music and good dancing!

“The ball takes place in a real airplane hangar at the Boulder Airport. WWII re-enactors, authentic WWII era military aircraft and ball-goers dressed in period clothes makes one feel one just stepped back in time.”
