Tired of doing the same thing for Valentine’s Day every year and looking for something new to experience? Want a chance to use that flapper costume you bought for Halloween a few years ago? Like supporting local non-profits?

Then join Racine Heritage Museum for our first annual Winter Gala, where you will be transported back in time to the most decadent of decades – Racine County in the Roaring Twenties!

A Night at the Speakeasy will be held from 6 to 11 p.m. Feb. 10 at the Racine Civic Centre, 5 Fifth Street.

This glamorous, not-to-be-missed gala will truly embody the Jazz Age and everything that came with it, including live music, provided by the Jack Farina 17-piece Big Band, “giggle water,” dinner and dancing. On display will be vintage 1920s items from the Museum’s collection, including a Racine-made NASH Coupe, CASE Model Y, Mitchell Sedan, plus much, much, more!
