It was a night for each girl to feel like Cinderella.

Wearing sparkly dresses and carrying flowers, the young Frankfort residents and their fathers were ready to enjoy the Frankfort Park District’s annual Daddy Daughter Dance, held Friday, Jan. 31, at the Founders Community Center in Frankfort.  

Cali DeBella, special events coordinator for the Frankfort Park District, said the event broke a record for attendance and was sold out in less than two weeks.

“This is one of our biggest events,” DeBella said. “This year we have 200 participants per night.”
