Tickets on sale now for Father-Daughter dances

MARYSVILLE — Ticket sales began Jan. 12 for the city of Marysville Parks and Recreation Department’s fourth-annual Father-Daughter Valentine’s Dances, and Recreation Coordinator Andrea Kingsford warned that those interested in attending shouldn’t wait to purchase their tickets.

“It’s really popular,” Kingsford said of the dances, which take place from 5:30-7 p.m. and from 7:30-9 p.m. on both Feb. 7 and 21, in the Cedarcrest Middle School cafeteria, at 6400 88th St. NE. “There are about 90 couples at each of the four dances. You’ll want to reserve your tickets early, because they sell out every year and they’re not sold at the door.”

Kingsford explained that the dances are open to all ages, and recalled attendees ranging from toddlers to adult women.

“The dads and daughters get all dressed up to the nines, and some of them even go out to dinner that night,” Kingsford said. “I remember one father who attended with both his daughter and his wife, and his wife was there with her father. One father shows up every year with his three daughters, one in her teens and two in their twenties. It’s a wonderful, magical evening.”

Tickets are available for $12 per couple, plus $3 for each additional daughter, and can be purchased at the Parks and Recreation Office in Jennings Park, on 6915 Armar Rd. For more information regarding the dances, please call the Recreation Office at 360-363-8400.
