Park Board Daddy/Daughter Dance

Once again this year the Dads and Daughters who attended the annual Davenport Park Board Daddy/Daughter dance on February 15, 2009 had a great time!  Last year the event was moved to the Davenport River Center in order to accommodate the increasing popularity of the event.  This year featured a buffet meal catered by Golick’s Meat Market in Davenport.  Food selections included ham, chicken, scalloped potatoes, mac and cheese, a fluffy fruit salad, and of course, cake for dessert.  Those in attendance had the opportunity to sit for a formal picture, make a bracelet and keychain at the craft table and sign up for some great prizes.

At 6:20 pm it was obvious that many of the young ladies were ready to “cut a rug”.  We opened the dance floor by lining everyone up and then began with the “Cha-Cha Slide”.  This year we focused on playing more recent music than in past years.  The young ladies were not shy about requesting music, the most popular requests being music from “High School Musical” and “Love Story” by Taylor Swift.  I also honored requests for the old stand-by’s such as the Chicken Dance and The Macarena.  The Dads enjoyed twisting to the Beatles and Chubby Checker.

Nothing is more fun than a date with Dad!

At the end of the evening I asked the young ladies to teach their fathers the motions to “Crank That” by Soulja Boy at home, so that the Dads could join in next year.  Hats off to the Davenport Park Board for staging another family friendly event!  One more reason it’s great to live in the Quad Cities!

Keep up with us, Dad!
