“The time has come for us to say Goodbye to Family Fancy Pants Dance. The event was well loved in the past, but it is time to move forward to new events in the future.”

Marietta Parks & Recreation, January 11, 2024

The annual Family Fancy Pants Dance (formerly the Daddy/Daughter Dance) wass open to children ages 5-12 years old as well as their fathers, mothers, or other special person in their life.  The event featured a fun afternoon with great music, dancing, games, and activities.  This was a great opportunity to make another magical childhood memory.

The theme for 2023 was Dance Around the World.  “Step” into Irish shoes, “Tango” to Argentina, “Polka” around Poland, and celebrate the different cultures of the world. Dress was semi-formal to formal, and theme appropriate dress was also welcome.

It was advised that participants register early because space was limited and reservations were required. Registration and more information was available online.

The final date was Sunday, February 12, 2023

The event took place from 2:30 pm – 5 pm

Tickets were $30, $5 for additional children, $10 for 1 additional adult.  Registration was limited to the first 100 children.  Tickets included dinner, dessert, DJ entertainment, prizes, and activities.

  1. Good evening,
    This request is in regards to the Father / Daughter Dance on Sunday, February 11th. I would like to request to be a vendor at the dance. I would like to offer small sized teddy bears with a set of pearls (necklace and earring sets) to be purchased at the dance. Prices will range from $10.00-$25.00.
    Thanks in advance
