There is just something about the bond between a father and daughter. It is something that should be celebrated.

Get in on Lufkin Parks and Recreation Department's "Daddy-Daughter Sweetheart Dance" and be a part of a tradition that sells out every year. The "Sweetheart Dance" is Saturday, January 29th, 2022 from 6 pm - 9 pm.

The first daddy-daughter dance was held in 2016. Just like that first dance this one will be held at the Pitser Garrison Civic Center.

Is this just for Dads and Daughters?

Sorry, no moms allowed. It's assumed that moms spend plenty of time with their kids and that dads spend plenty of time with their sons, so this is there to fill the gap. For whatever reason it started, this is a beloved activity between fathers and daughters.

The daddy daughter dance is open to fathers, uncles, grandfathers, or any father figures. Daughters must be 5 -14 years old to participate.

This is being billed as a magical night to create a cherished memory that will last a lifetime and strengthen that special relationship between fathers and daughters.

This is a great way to set the standard of how your daughter should expect to be treated on a date. The father-daughter dance has become a time-honored tradition.

Inserting a positive, male role model into the lives of children has been proven to have a positive effect no matter the gender.
