Kids will dance the evening away with their favorite adult and make a memory that will last forever. Get ready moms, dads, grandpas, grandmas and super special people for experiencing a night to remember with your little ones.

Imagine how cute it will be to see the little ones slow dancing with their favorite adult and the bigger kids showing the adults how to do the latest moves. Prepare to dance the evening away with our sponsor DJ Brett Myhre.

A photographer will be available for couple’s photos to mark the occasion. There will also be roaming photographers taking candid shots throughout the evening. Of course the highlight is the dessert table! Our volunteers make the best sweet treats and will be a big hit with everyone attending.

Tickets can be purchased at the museum or online using the form here.

Member Tickets are $15 per couple. Non-member Tickets are $20 per couple. $5 for each additional guest. Tickets are limited so be sure to get yours early!
