Saturday, Nov. 8,

The Spirit of Tulsa Squadron of the Commemorative Air Force brings the spirit of the swing era to the 13th Annual Big Band Hangar Dance, 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 8, at the Tulsa Technology Center’s Riverside Campus. The CAF is a nonprofit, national organization committed to preserving vintage military aircraft. This year’s hangar dance will have several such aircraft – including a restored PT-19 combat craft – on display during the World War II-themed dinner and dance event. (Earlier in the day, the squadron will offer flights in the PT-19 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the campus, 801 E. 91st St., Tulsa.) The night will include a salute to U.S. veterans, free swing dance lessons and an 18-piece orchestra ready to get everyone moving. Participants are encouraged to dress in 1940s period clothes. General admission to the dance is $20. Go to www.caftulsa.org to purchase tickets and see special table and dinner pricing.

Next week, the annual Tulsa Veterans Day Parade will take place starting at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 11, in downtown Tulsa.
