Dads and their daughters boogied on the bayou last weekend during a Princess and the Frog-themed party at the Trinkle Center.
The 12th annual Dad & Daughter Date Night is hosted by Parks and Recreation and featured dancing, dinner, a princess meet and greet, crafts and more. The couples paid $35, dressed up in their finest party attire and headed to the Trinkle Center Saturday and Sunday afternoon. Because of COVID-19, Parks & Rec split up the event into a two-day affair.
Tables were social distanced along each side of the hall and a dance floor filled the center of the room. Princess Tiana and Princess Aurora were on site for a socially distanced photo op and a riverboat was on the stage for attendees to take their own candid shots in front of.
The event is always open to any dad, grandfather, uncle, guardian or father figure who wants to come with their daughter, granddaughter, nieces, etc. age 3 and up. The children who attend are given a flower and a keepsake photo. Masks were handed out at the door for those who had not brought their own.
