MOSES LAKE — The Moses Lake Choral Boosters will sponsor a night for princesses (in the Moses Lake High School commons) and superheroes (in the gym) Saturday. The annual Dad-Daughter Dance and Mother-Son Fun Night are scheduled for 6:30 to 9 p.m.
The high school is located at 803 East Sharon Ave.
Proceeds go to the MLHS choral booster club. The boosters have sponsored the dad-daughter dance for about 12 years, and mom-son fun night for about six years.
Girls get the chance to put on their sparkliest, spangliest dresses and their fanciest shoes. Dads — and grandfathers and uncles and brothers — wear their best duds, whether it’s a suit or their best jeans or a tux, and dance with their girls.
And the girls have a chance to meet princesses. Many, many princesses. Girls in the choral program dress up as Cinderella and Elsa, Snow White and Belle (among others), to talk to the girls and pose for pictures.
The evening also includes craft projects, cookies and punch, and girls and dads (and grandpas and uncles and brothers) can have pictures taken. Photos are by J. Keele Photography.
While princesses and their dads are dancing in the commons, boys and moms are hanging out with superheroes and villains in the gym. Mother-Son Fun Night was started to give moms and sons (and grandmas and aunts and sisters) something to do while the girls and dads are dancing.
Choral students also volunteer to don superhero costumes and maybe even some villain costumes. (Volunteers are both boys and girls, there being some female superheroes.)
There are bounce houses, games and crafts, pedal car races and the “Selfie Station,” where moms and sons can dress up for pictures.
Choral students volunteer for a lot of the work, setting up the games in the gym, decorating the commons, serving the cookies and doing the myriad jobs that come with putting on an event.
