Daddy Daughter Dance  (March 30, 2019 @ 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.)
It promises to be an evening they will long remember, as Grosse Pointe girls, age 12 and under, twist and twirl with their best beau - Daddy - at the All-Pointes Daddy-Daughter Dance.

Parks and Recreation staff from Grosse Pointe Farms, Woods, Shores, Farms, City and Park have collaborated once again to create what is hoped will be an annual event every local daughter will look forward to attending with her Dad.

It's a semi-formal affair, complete with a rose for each young lady at the end of the dance. Just like a grown-up party, there will be frilly decorations, and lots of yummy appetizers and snacks with the addition of everyone's favorite tunes, keeping the party moving on the dance floor. Most importantly, Dads are encouraged to bring their cameras to capture the memories of this magical night.
