The run-up of the engines of Miss Mitchell, the B-25 bomber was done early in the evening, in conjunction with the history flights. Cindy Gardner and Scott Sonbuchner from TC Swing gave free swing dance lessons beginning at 7:00 p.m. Starting at 7:50, the color guard from Fort Snelling made a presentation to open the dance and Stan Turner introduced the dance and welcomed the dancers.
Set One - Part 1 (8:00-8:45):
|At this point, while the band took a break, Stan Turner honored all veterans and active military personnel. This activity finished by about 8:53, but the pipes and drums weren't at the entrance, so Glen used the time to tell the audience about the band's sponsorship by Roseville Parks & Recreation, invite musicians to sit-in night, and introduce the saxophone and trombone sections.|
