Vlaodsta - Fathers and daughters are getting ready for a night on the town.

First Presbyterian Church is sponsoring the 10th annual Father-Daughter Dance at the James H. Rainwater Conference Center Friday night. Three thousand tickets were sold for this year's dance, and they sold out in just one day!

he event is so popular that is was featured in a recent edition of Southern Living as one of the social events of the South. "It's so popular because its a chance dads like me can spend special time when their daughters, no matter what age they are, and they can show them how a lady should be treated on a date," said Jeff Stewart, Organizer. 

Organizers have divided the event into two separate dance sessions to accommodate the large crowd. They're looking for ways to expand next year so even more fathers and daughters can attend.
