It was a Groovy Night at the 1960s-themed 4th Annual History with a Twist

Blue and white VW Beetles, a yellow Thunderbird, and a pink Cadillac flanked the entrance of Dallas Heritage Village’s History with a Twist, providing a perfect picture spot for the almost 400 guests decked out in rose-colored glasses, Sgt. Pepper jackets, flared and flowered pants, tie dye, headbands, beads, boots, peace signs, wigs, and Jackie Kennedy-appropriate attire.

Twist’s usual 1920’s theme jumped ahead 40 years to the 1960s in honor of the Village’s 50th anniversary.  Presented by Sidley Austin, LLP, the 4th annual fundraiser was held on Main Street at Dallas Heritage Village.   Tables lined Main Street all the way to the vintage photo wagon set up to capture fun memories at the end of the street, and guests enjoyed Blue Mesa Catering and festive cocktails created by Brian McCullough of The Standard Pour.
