SUBMITTED BY THE RACINE HERITAGE MUSEUM
Don your best duds and stompers and get ready to dance the night away at Swingin’ into Spring – A Night in the 1940s!
Join Racine Heritage Museum on Saturday, April 27 at Racine’s majestic Memorial Hall, 72 7th Street, for this immersive event featuring WWII artifacts from the museum’s collection, including rarely seen wartime products from local industry. Live music will be provided by the Jack Farina Big Band with a special guest vocalist and other entertainment, there will be a 50/50 raffle and more! Period dress is highly encouraged.
Not only will the night be one to remember, but it will also provide critical funds for the museum. This community event directly supports the care and preservation of Racine County’s unique and remarkable history and our work to bring that history to life through exhibits, educational programming, and outreach efforts. You will be helping us fulfill the museum’s core mission: to preserve and tell the stories of Racine County and its people. Racine Heritage Museum is home to over 200,000 artifacts and an extensive archival collection, over 6,500 linear feet (over one mile!) of original source documentary material – the record of our area’s economic and cultural history.
The event is open to those who are age 21 and above with valid identification. Doors will open at 6 p.m. for drinks and hors d’oeuvres, dinner will be served at 6:45 p.m. and the party will continue until 11 p.m. Delicious dinner options include beef, chicken or vegetarian (all of which are gluten free). Then, stay the night at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Racine Harbourwalk – only four minutes from Memorial Hall!
