A night to remember

Girls and their dads can enjoy a night in an enchanted forest--and create lifelong memories--at the 12th annual Daddy Daughter Sweetheart Dance, planned for the pre-Valentine’s Day weekend at Kiwanis Recreation Center.

Dances will be from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, Feb. 11 for little ladies ages 4 to 7 and Saturday, Feb. 12 for young ladies ages 8 to 12.

The center will be transformed into an enchanted forest where fairies can roam and flutter around. Center staff will welcome young ladies and their escorts to a memorable evening of dancing the night away. 

There will be make-and-take art projects, games, entertainment and refreshments for dads and daughters to enjoy together. 

Each family will receive a memory photo as well as a rose for each young lady.

Advance registration is required due to limited space. Registration on or before Feb. 6 is $20 per couple per night; each additional child is $6 per night.  Registration from Feb. 7 through 12 is $32 per couple per night and $6 per additional child for each evening. 

Participants can register in person at the center or online at www.tempe.gov/pkrec/krc.  Information: (480) 350-5711 or 350-5050 TDD or www.tempe.gov/pkrec.

Kiwanis Recreation Center is at 6111 S. All America Way, Tempe.
