Every year, thousands of Canadian and American winter visitors migrate to the state of Texas to escape the cold winter weather of the north. The Winter Texans’ Snowbird Extravaganza is a homecoming and celebration of this unique way of life.
This event combines a consumer show featuring products and services of local and national organizations and free entertainment all day long featuring some of Canada’s most popular musical and comedy artists.
Lexington Board President Tim Noble announced plans for the 21st Annual Stage Door Canteen to be held aboard the USS Lexington on Friday, Feb. 14, at 7 p.m. The event will commemorate the 71st anniversary of the commissioning of the USS Lexington CV-16.
Rocco Montesano, museum executive director, said this year’s show will recreate canteen shows from World War II when famous entertainers traveled the world performing for men and women far from home. Headlining the star-studded cast will be the USS Lexington Big Band Orchestra. Celebrated vocal artists Jason Armstrong, Geri Elliff, Flicka Rahn and Christine Skinner will perform songs of the era. Scott Plant will be back this year to entertain guests with his fiddle.
