This year’s fourth annual Snowflake Ball was bigger and better than ever.

The special night for fathers and daughters to dance and share moments, moved from the Seniors Drop-In Centre to the ballroom at the Penticton Lakeside.

The larger venue meant more room for an event that always sells out. Around 520 dads and daughters made it out for a night of dancing, crafts and bonding.

Even with double the number of spaces, there was still a long waiting list after the last ticket was sold.
