Step back in time this Christmas for an unforgettably magical 40s & 50s holiday party that will bring back all the warmth & nostalgia of a more simple time!


Experience an enchanting evening of dancing w/ your sweetheart (or maybe meet one!), amidst 1940s and 50s vehicles, movie set lights & props, re-enactors, sleighs, Christmas trees, a canopy of lights & the most sought after big bands including: The Hot Tomatoes, the (19 piece) Metropolitan Jazz Orchestra, William and the Romantics and the Flatirons Jazz Orchestra! On top of that, we will also be featuring a Rat Pack tribute with Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr.(coming straight from Vegas), The Satin Dollz (coming all the way from Hollywood) and the White Christmas Singers/movie cast!


A holiday spectacle of dazzling lights, festive music, and dancing that will bring back the feeling of Christmas, just like the ones ‘you used to know!’
