More than 450 people attended the second annual Father-Daughter Snowflake Ball Saturday at Stratigos Banquet Centre in North Huntingdon. Organized by the North Huntingdon Township Department of Parks and Recreation, the event featured dinner, dancing, prizes and a magic show.

The department's director, Dan Miller, said there was a waiting list for the popular event. “This is a tougher ticket to get than Steeler tickets,” he said. “Enjoy your memories tonight and cherish your time with your girls.”

The event was open to father figures and girls ages 4 to 10, who each got a carnation and gift bag upon entering. Jenna Varney and Callie Meyer, both 8, are friends who attend Sunset Valley Elementary School. Callie said it was fun to attend with her father, Steve Meyer, because “He's a loving and caring dad, and he's a good dancer,” while Jenna said she had a great time with her dad, Jim Varney, a “wild dancer.”
