A magic show, free temporary tattoo, superhero photo and special performance by the Star Wars Stormtroopers round out the event.

--Princess Tea Party — A one-of-a-kind event for girls. Participants will enjoy the royal treatment that includes a princess hairstyle and make-up. They will be crowned with a tiara and showered with gifts, including a glitter tattoo. They will have their picture taken and enjoy treats and entertainment while seeing a special appearance by royalty. Princess attire is encouraged.

--Crystal Ball — A special evening of music and dancing with a little sweetheart. This is a great opportunity for dads and their daughters or moms and their sons to get dressed up, enjoy light refreshments and share a memorable evening together. All ages are welcome. A photographer will be on hand to capture the memories and all guests receive a keepsake photo frame and goody bag. Formal attire is recommended.
