Midwinter Military Ball

Midwinter Military Ball is an Academy tradition that dates back to the turn of the 20th Century and consists of a formal dinner and military ball. Just a few of the ceremonial activities that occur during the ball are posting the national colors, presenting honorary rank to cadet leaderships' dates, participating in a formal receiving line and a grand processional with an "arch of steel". The ball typically takes place on the first Saturday of March.
