Daddy Daughter Dance
Dads grab your daughter's hand and take them onto the dance floor at one of three Daddy Daughter Dances slated for February 5 and 6 at the Novi Civic Center.

The annual event, which always sells out, has dances scheduled for 7-9pm on Feb. 5 and 2-4pm and 7-9pm on Feb. 6.

An Evening in Paris is this year's theme. Dads (or significant male in your child's life) and daughters will be dressed in their finest as they dance to current and past hits. A decadent spread of desserts will include a variety of items for dipping in a chocolate fountain and Sno-cones. The event will conclude with an elegant balloon drop.

Cost to attend is $14 per person for residents and $17 for non-residents. Wrist corsages and Parisian-themed charms are both available for pre-order for $8 each and will be available for pick up at the dance. Each couple also will receive a FREE photo and additional packages will be available for an additional cost. All daughters will also receive a special gift when they leave. 

Registration is available online at cityofnovi.org or at the Novi Civic Center, 45175 Ten Mile Road. For more information, call 248.347.0400.
