USO Dance at Fredericksburg Hangar Hotel

by MPI Traveler on May 17, 2013

 Just in time for Memorial Day!

Head out to the Hangar Hotel in Fredericksburg, Texas and help support the United Service Organization (USO) in Ft. Hood by spending part of your Memorial Day weekend dancing to the sounds of a 1940s style big band.

The Hangar Hotel will be hosting another USO Style Hangar Dance on Saturday May 25, 2013.  A percentage of the event’s proceeds will be donated to USO Ft. Hood, which delivers programs and services to more than 40,000 service members and their families.

The Hangar Dance will feature big band music by Fredericksburg local Bill Smallwood and “The Lonestar Swing Orchestra.” Attendees can participate in swing dance lessons from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.; the band will play from 8:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m. The Hangar Hotel’s Pacific Showroom tiki bar will be available to patrons as well as concessions from the Airport Diner. Those donning a military uniform will receive a coupon for a free drink.

Attendees are encouraged to wear their best 1940s inspired outfit and participate in the costume contest. Winners will receive prizes including a gift certificate to the Hangar Hotel, the Fredericksburg Brewing Company and a gift basket from the Fredericksburg Herb Farm.

The Hangar Hotel, located adjacent to the Gillespie County Airport, was designed to mimic the look of a WWII airplane hangar, providing the perfect setting for a USO style dance. The event will be held in the Pacific Showroom, located next to the hotel, which is decorated in South Pacific/WWII style complete with palm trees and tiki bar. For more information, to purchase a ticket to the dance or make room reservations, contact the Hangar Hotel at (830) 997-9990.
