The dance will also have 2 food trucks this year to give dancers a variety of food to choose from. They will be featuring Panini PinUps and The Outlaw Grill.
The Roseville Big Band will be playing 1940's style Big Band museum and a dance lesson will be given by Terry & Cindy Gardner of TC Swing from 7-8 pm. So even if you have two left feet, the lesson will give you an opportunity to try your hand at swing dancing.
In addition to the music, dancing, and food, there will also be an engine run-up with the museum's historic WWII aircraft and a chance for everyone to celebrate the Greatest Generation as we as we honor the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
All proceeds to benefit the Commemorative Air Force Minnesota Wing and their WWII museum.
