14th annual Daddy Daughter Dance goes 50s themed
DICKINSON -Dickinson's dads and daughters were transported back to the 1950s during this years sock hop themed 14th annual Daddy Daughter Dance hosted by the Dickinson Police Association at August House between Thursday, April 27 and Saturday, April 29.
The annual event brought together young ladies accompanied by dads, uncles, grandpas and loved ones who enjoyed an evening full of food, ice cream, photos and of course boogying on the dance floor.
The little ladies sported everything from puffy pink poodle skirts to grand ball gowns princess tiaras included, their gentleman on the theme in jeans with black leather jackets, suit and tie, or cowboy hats and boots.
While the dates shuffled in, they were surrounded by disco balls hanging from the ceiling, 50s-themed balloons and milkshake party favors covering the tables.
The first stop was dinner, of course, then off to snap pictures of the memorable night before the girls got warmed up on the dance floor.
When the time came, the dads were fearless dancing hand in hand with their daughters to Taylor Swift and Hannah Montanna, twirling and spinning alongside them every step of the way.
For 14 years the event has been a staple in the Dickinson community and with each passing year not only does it continue to grow, but it continues to provide everlasting memories for families in the community.
One Dickinson dad has been attending the event with his daughters for nearly a decade and has no plans on stopping.
“For eight years the Daddy Daughter Dance has given my daughters and me a beautiful evening of fun that we all look forward to every year, ” Nolan Overton said.
The dance has proven to be so popular that what started out as a single day event has now grown into an event offered across three days. Although despite adding additional days, the well-loved event was still completely sold out this year too.
The Daddy Daughter Dance was sponsored by area businesses including August House, Cash Wise Foods, RG Wild, Service Printers, Simply Flowers and 4 Corners Cafe.
