Tickets remain for Grand Victorian Ball in Walla Walla - Etcetera - 11/8/13


Tickets are still available for Walla Walla’s Grand Victorian Ball on Saturday. Participant Dan Clark said a wonderful evening is in store for participants as well a morning dance workshop for interested parties.

For those in Victorian or Steampunk costumes, free wine tasting will be offered at a variety of downtown wineries all day Saturday. A Psychic Fair is being hosted at Kirkman House Museum during the morning and afternoon.

The classic evening ball — the sort written up in literature and shown in movies — will feature music by a 12-piece orchestra. Guests will be announced as they arrive. Ladies will receive a dance card/programme du bal to keep track of which partner will dance which dance. Don’t know the steps? Have no fear as a dancing master will teach the moves prior to each one.

For help or ideas for a suitable period costume for the ball or the full weekend, email or call Judith Poirot at or 509-520-0671. Or just dress up however you like, as long as you wear some kind of fancy wear to the ball.
