My five-year-old and I had a fantastic time at the dance party Friday night at The ArtsCenter in Carrboro. There were crafts and activities, food and of course lots of music and dancing. It was all a fundraiser for Alex's Lemonade Stand, the children's cancer charity.
I was really impressed with the whole set up. There was an area off the dance floor with toys for kids who wanted to take a break from dancing, a diaper changing area and even a rocking chair. Local businesses helped man activity tables, including mini-manicures for the kids, sock puppets and face painting.
The Baby Loves Disco folks tell me they were very impressed with how fast the tickets went - selling out within about two weeks. So if you missed it this time, there's a good chance they'll be back, they tell me.
Check the video for some cute kids dancing Friday night.
And a shout out to the businesses who helped us put it all together:
