Photos: The 1940s White Christmas Ball was reason to kick up your heels

Dolled-up revelers celebrated Christmas the way their parents and grandparents might have -- plus a little artistic license -- at the 1940s White Christmas Ball last Saturday, December 7, at the Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum. The event featured music from the Queen City Jazz Band, reenactments from the movie White Christmas, and live glassblowing. Westword photographer Philip Poston was there. You can see all of his photos in our 1940s White Christmas Ball slide show.
