Over 150 couples consisting of little girls with their fathers, uncles or grandfathers filled Cheney Middle School for the annual West Fargo Park District Father-Daughter dance.

Park District employees along with National Honor Society students volunteered to help during the Saturday event.

The event included a grand march, corsages for the girls, dance with music by Powerplay DJ, photography by Scherling Photography and refreshments.

Miss West Fargo, Faye Stromberg, and last year’s Miss West Fargo, Carly Lehr, helped with grand march and took pictures and mingled with the girls during the dance.

Girls could for the second year sign up to get pampered before the event at during the Sparkle and Shine time at Cloud 9 Salon in West Fargo.

“We thought it would be a fun activity for the kids and an opportunity for the parents to have their kids get ready for the dance at a more affordable rate,” Kim Wangler, recreation specialist with the West Faro Park District said. “This year’s event grew significantly from last year.”
