A Week Dedicated to our Foudners
In 1918, the Taborian Hall, the building that houses the Dreamland Ballroom, was completed. The Knights and Daughters of Tabor (a black fraternal organization) spent a week from July 14 - 20 celebrating the completion of their new headquarters and home on W. 9th St.
To honor this week long dedication process from 1918, Friends of Dreamland invites you to dine in Doc's and behold the ballroom! So on the afternoon of the 20th, come down to Doc's Pool Hall (the State St. side garage at the back of the building) for a brown bag luncheon, cold drinks, and a walking tour of Dreamland Ballroom and W. 9th St.
FlagandBanner.com will also do a promotion for Dreamland Ballroom merchandise through Friday July 14th to Thursday July 20th. Buy one of the books written about Dreamland Ballroom and W. 9th St., Temple of Dreams and The Line, or the Dream Land documentary DVD and get a brand new Dreamland Ballroom T-shirt (new design to come!)
