Princess ball returns to YMCA


A family favorite, the Royal Princess Ball, will return to the Fort Benjamin Harrison YMCA, 5736 Lee Rd., Lawrence.

The event will be at 6 p.m. Feb. 21. The night will include games, crafts, music, special appearances, dancing and a candlelight dinner.

Previously, the event was a dad/daughter dance but was changed to the Royal Princess Ball due to make the event appealing to nontraditional families.

“We have a lot of mothers and grandmothers and small boys come, too,” member involvement director Megan Klomp said. “Everybody gets to come.”

The candlelight dinner will be from 6 to 8 p.m. and families will receive their time slot for dinner upon arrival. It consists of a seated dinner with pasta and meatballs, salad and breadsticks. Families can dine first or enjoy some of the activities prior to dinner.

“We have a DJ, a craft, a dance floor and a photo opportunity,” Klomp said. “There are snacks in the main room and games like pin the nose on Olaf. This year is ‘Frozen’ themed.”

Attendees are encouraged to dress in princess attire, but there is no dress code. Tickets are $10 for YMCA members and $15 for nonmembers. For more, visit
