This is the 3rd year for what’s becoming a very popular event in Everett. Here’s what you need to know…

From little feet riding on daddy’s dress shoes to grown adults respectfully honoring a cherished bond, Everett’s annual daddy daughter dance invites pairs of all ages to dress up and share a special evening.

“We’ve had families with multiple generations come together,” says Jan Tanner, Everett Parks and Recreation program supervisor. “It’s wonderful to see the dads twirling with their daughters and just opening up and having fun.”

Dads and daughters can dance to a variety of pop favorites spun by DJ PJ Parsons, who welcomes requests. Enjoy sweet and healthy refreshments and pose for complimentary commemorative pictures. Tickets are $29 per dad/daughter pair and $6 for each additional daughter. Grandpas, big brothers and other male role models also are welcome as escorts.

Advance tickets are encouraged for one of two nights: Friday, Feb. 6 or Saturday, Feb. 7. The time and location are the same for both evenings: 6-8:30 p.m. in Floral Hall at Forest Park, 802 E. Mukilteo Blvd. Reservations can be made by calling the Recreation Office at 425-257-8300, ext. 2., 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday

“A lot of families make a big night of it by dressing up, sending a fancy invitation, planning a special dinner or buying flowers,” said Paul Kaftanski, parks and recreation director. “Whether you go big or keep things simple, we hope you’ll join us! This is a great way for dads and daughters to create lasting memories.”

One of the event sponsors, Stadium Flowers, offers a 25 percent discount on corsages and boutonnieres to anyone who has a reservation receipt from the recreation office.

This is Everett’s third daddy-daughter dance event. Last year, a total of 388 dads and daughters bought tickets. Saturday was the most popular night.
