“Over the Moon” Theme for Daddy Daughter Dance

Dance Also Features Dad and Daughter Activities

(January 12, 2022, Commerce, Texas)  The Northeast Texas Children’s Museum will give dads a chance to be “Over the Moon” about their daughters.  The event will be the annual Daddy Daughter Dance on February 5 from 6:30 to 8:30 with the theme of “Over the Moon”. The event will feature a dance; play in the 20,000 sq ft Children’s Museum; interactive activities with dads and daughters; Moon Crafts; and Moon Food.

This year’s dance will welcome Jim Ayres as disc jockey.  His familiarity with this role should bring excitement to the dance floor.  But what if a dad does not want to dance?  There will be other participatory  activities for the duo.  Dads and daughters can compete in such activities as  the Asteroid Throw, Shoot the Moon, and Moon Rock Throw.  And there is always the opportunity for the girls to play in the estimated 50 exhibits in the Children’s Museum.  

Brenda Estes, food chairperson for the event, said, “I love to prepare food that looks exciting and interesting for the young girls.”  This year’s menu will include crescent meat pies, cheese stars, and astroids.  And what would the night be without Moon Pies?  Thalian Culture Club will again be a sponsor for the food.   

With the help of Lonnie Plunkett and Elana Barton, large moons will shine over the event.  Moon crafts such as painting moon rocks will provide a memorable souvenir for each girl of this special evening.  Another memory of the evening will be possible through photographs by Joe and Emily Shipman.  Their expertise captures the moment for years to come.  

“‘Over the Moon’ has so many connotations.  Dads are over the moon about their daughters; the supporters of the Children’s Museum are over the moon that the museum is celebrating its twentieth year.”  said  Sharline Freeman, Executive Director.  “The “Over the Moon” theme will be carried out throughout 2022 as we celebrate the longevity of the Children’s Museum.  However, we hope that dads will take the opportunity of showing their daughters they are “Over the Moon” about them on February 5.”  

 Discounted tickets are now on sell at the Northeast Texas Children’s Museum and can be purchased online or by calling 903-886-6055. Tickets purchased before the day of the event are $35 for a young girl and her escort of a dad, granddad, uncle, or older brother.  Each additional girl will be $10.  Tickets will be $40 for each couple on the day of the event.
