Father/daughter dance set in West Carrollton

The fifth annual Father/Daughter dance, sponsored by the city, will be held from 7-9 p.m. Nov. 9 at Fire Station 1, 125 W. Central Ave.

Fathers, grandfathers, older brothers, uncles and others are welcome.

Tickets cost $10 per couple with $5 for each additional girl. Tickets are $15 per couple at the door.

The theme of the dance is Garden Party. The event is open to anyone.

“We encourage the girls to come dressed as their favorite flower, bug, bird, fairy, animal or anything garden related,” said Alicia Norton, secretary with the West Carrollton Parks & Recreation department. “The dads will be the gardeners.”

Norton helped start the dance and coordinates the event each year.

“It’s a really neat opportunity for the dads to be able to spend time with the daughters. It’s a chance for them to have a date night,” Norton said. “It’s a fun environment. They come and have a good time, and everyone leaves with a smile on their face.”

Light snacks and beverages will be provided. Photos of each couple also will be taken at no cost. The event typically draws 50 to 60 couples.

“We take pictures of each couple and provide a 4x6 in the mail,” Norton said. “Each girl will also receive a carnation. This year we will also be handing out bean bag garden creatures.”
