A Night in the Life:
1940s Flyboys and Riveting Gals
Friday, October 19 | 7–10 pm | Oklahoma History Center
Join the Oklahoma Historical Society for an immersive evening in the 1940s. Held at the Oklahoma History Center, this annual fundraising event will entertain guests with a USO Show complete with dancing and live entertainment, and an Officers’ Club with more relaxed 1940s music where guests can mingle. The photo booth will be back, allowing guests to insert themselves in some of history’s most memorable WWII propaganda posters. The evening will include heavy hors d’oeuvres and drinks from the time period, a dress-up station, dance lessons, vignettes, and fun!
