Third Annual Holiday Heritage Swing Dance on Nov. 4

 

The public is invited to Remember the Railroad for the third annual Holiday Heritage Swing Dance on Friday, Nov. 4, from 6 – 9 p.m. at Freighthouse Square (2501 E. D St., Rainier Room).

 

The event will feature the Pierce County Community Big Band, a swing dance demonstration by Studio 6 Ballroom, free refreshments and a no-host bar will also be available. This historic preservation fundraiser is commemorating Tacoma’s railroad history and the Prairie Line Trail. Attendees are encouraged to come dressed in period costume.

 

“This is our last big event for our 2016 program which was Secret Tacoma: Tacoma’s Surprising History,” said Historic Preservation Coordinator Lauren Hoogkamer. “We look forward to exploring a new aspect of Tacoma’s history in 2017—we have big things planned.”

 

This event is free and open to the public, with a suggested donation for entry that will go to support heritage programming and events in 2017. Visit cityoftacoma.org/HPEvents for more information or contact Hoogkamer at lhoogkamer@cityoftacoma.org or call (253) 591-5254. To RSVP, visit the Tacoma Historic Preservation Facebook page.

 

Remember the Railroad: Third Annual Holiday Heritage Swing Dance is presented by the Tacoma Landmarks Preservation Commission, the City of Tacoma’s Historic Preservation Office and co-sponsored by Tacoma Historical Society.
