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 an “Over the Moon” theme. The event will feature 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 a 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. In addition, there is the opportunity for the girls to play in the estimated 50 exhibits in the Children’s Museum.
Brenda Estes, the 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 asteroids. 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 museum will carry out “The “Over the Moon” theme 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.”

Tickets purchased before the event day are $35 for a young girl and her escort of a dad, granddad, uncle, or older brother. Each additional girl will be $10.
