Park and Rec’s Daddy- Daughter dances are becoming a Swedesboro-Woolwich tradition. This event is for young ladies and their dad/grandfather/other special male relative.

On Saturday, March 12, the Daddy Daughter Dance for grades Pre-K to Grade 1 will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Then from 7 to 9 p.m., the dance will be held for grades 4 through 6.

Dances are by grade level. However dads with two or more girls can choose the dance they want to attend. Because of fire code capacity, tickets are limited. Tickets are $10 per father/daughter couple, $13 for a father and two daughters, and $16 for a father and three daughters plus online fees.
