Family Past Times: Dallas Jazz Era Sunday Social with the Singapore Slingers at Dallas Heritage Village at Old City Park
Ann Pinson Recommends
Don your best vintage attire for this '20s-themed event at the newly restored Van Cleave Bandstand in Dallas Heritage Village at Old City Park. There'll be a costume contest, lessons featuring old-time dance steps and you can even bring a camera and pose in front of a Model A Ford. For those who know Matt Tolentino of the Singapore Slingers, it'll come as no surprise that this event was his idea (the Slingers and Razzmajazz will perform).
Dallas Heritage Village and the Art Deco Society of Dallas present the inaugural Dallas Jazz Era Sunday Social. Dress in your finest whites and enjoy an afternoon of live music at the recently restored Van Cleave Bandstand. Costume contest at 2:30 for best “Lawn Party attire”—think vintage bathing beauties, walking whites and parasols. Bring a picnic but save room for dessert at Carnival Barker's Ice Creams. Learn a few vintage dance steps with Elaine Hewlett from the Rhythm Room. An array of Model A Fords will be on display from Vintage Coach. Play a game or two of croquet or tour the historic structures of the Village. Blankets and lawn chairs welcome. Ongoing Dallas Heritage Village activities such as tours of the Millermore and Sullivan homes will also be available.
Kids 12 and under free. All others: $10.
