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.

Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
