Swing the night away
The Hangar Dance benefits Talons Out Honor Flight.

Break out that awesome vintage dress from the 1940s, put on your pumps and get ready to swing the night away Aug. 17 at the Hangar Dance at the Air Zoo, 3101 E. Milham Ave. in Portage.

The Hangar Dance will take place from 6–10 p.m. and will feature swing and big-band music by Jim McKinney, swing dancers, food trucks and a raffle. The event is a benefit for the Talons Out Honor Flight, a nonprofit organization that takes World War II & Korean War Veterans from Southwest Michigan to Washington, D.C. (at no charge to the vets) to visit their memorials.

Period dress is encouraged, and tickets are $15, $25 for a couple and $5 for those 16 and younger. For tickets and information, visit
