Arlington Parks and Recreation is keeping tradition alive as their annual Daddy Daughter Dance transitions to their first Light Up the Night, Daddy Daughter Date Night in a Box on February 20, 2021.

 Let us set the stage for you to continue making memories with your daughters! Whether you choose to stick with the dress attire or decide something more casual, the night will be yours to create.

 Daddy Daughter Date Night in a Box will be a drive-thru event. It will be held at Bob Duncan Center on Saturday, February 20, 2021 from 4 to 7 p.m. During that time, pre-registered families will pick up their special date night box filled with several items that our guests have grown to love over the years – as well as a few fun surprises. From there, the night awaits!

 Registration opens December 1, 2020. Cost is $8 per daughter through January 15, 2021. Late registration will be $12 per daughter January 16 – February 15.
