The Cincinnati Donauschwaben Society invites Germans and non-Germans alike to their Dirdnl Trachtenball, a dinner and dance aimed at preserving and celebrating German language and cultural heritage. Dinner begins at 6 p.m. and will include roast pork with all the trimmings, homemade dessert and coffee. Dancing will follow at 7:30 p.m. with live musical accompaniment by the Rheingold Band and a special performance by the Donauschwaben Youth and Schuhplattler.
This would be a great opportunity to break out your dirndls and trachts if you have them. And the queen of the ball will be determined by a raffle. 6-11:30 p.m. $16 for dinner and dance; $8 dance only. Advance dinner reservations required. Donauschwaben Halle, 4290 Dry Ridge Road, Colerain.
