If 2012 is anything like last year, I'll be updating this post several times. So this is the beginning.
Now is the time to start signing up for local daddy-daughter dances. These very popular events often sell out, so it's best to get your tickets as soon as possible.
Here is information for three of them:
Cary's annual daddy-daughter dance will be offered on two dates this year because of the demand. Girls ages 4 to 12 and their fathers may choose between Friday, Feb. 3, or Saturday, Feb. 4. The dance will be held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Cary Senior Center, 120 Maury O'Dell Place in Bond Park. Pre-registration is required. Both fathers and daughters must be registered. The fee for either night is $17 per person for Cary residents and $22 per person for non-residents. For more information, click here or call 919-462-3970.
Raleigh's Laurel Hills Community Center hosts a night of dancing, refreshments and entertainment for dads and their daughters from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Feb. 10. It's for all ages. Tickets are $15 per person for Raleigh residents and $27 for non-residents. Space is very limited. Pre-registration is required. Call 919-420-2383.
The Triangle Father Daughter Dance is 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., Feb. 4, at Marbles Kids Museum in downtown Raleigh. Tickets are $40 for a dad and his daughter, ages 2 and up. The annual dance also provides an opportunity for girls without active fathers in their lives to be a part of the event.
