Denver rewound the clock by seventy years on Saturday night at the 1940s White Christmas Ball, which took place, appropriately, inside the Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum.

The venue allowed for a few new twists on the annual gala, including food trucks, street lamps and a re-created main street from It's A Wonderful Life.
