Princesses will once again come to the Marysville Opera House to meet local children at the third annual Princess and Pixie Dust Perfect Party on Sept. 29.
The event is held through two sessions from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. and from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the opera house at 1225 Third St., Marysville. The cost is $15 per person.
There will be three princesses at the event, one for each floor of the Opera House, and they will be available for families and kids to interact with.
“We transform each floor of the Opera House so that it matches the princess that goes along with it,” said Andrea Kingsford, recreation coordinator for the city of Marysville.
In addition to meeting the princesses, there will be crafts and treats on each floor of the Opera House.
“Participants will be able to take part in crafts and treats,” and the treats match the style of each of the princesses, said Kingsford.
Kids enjoy putting on nice dresses for the event to join in on the fun, said Kingsford.
“It is a wonderful opportunity to dress up, take some photos and see your favorite princesses,” she said.
They also enjoy talking with the princesses.
“They love to meet each of the princesses that are part of the event, and we also do dances with the princesses there,” she said.
It is a lot of fun for the kids who come to the event, said Kingsford.
“Kids are enchanted with the evening and it is really wonderful,” she said. “They are full of smiles.”
Families also like being able to provide fun events for their children as well, she said.
“The parents love to have a special day with their kids," said Kingsford.
The event has grown throughout it’s first three years, said Kingsford, and last year the city added a second session to the event.
“This year we have two sessions available again because it has become so popular,” she said.
Families can preregister at marysvillewa.gov for the event.
“I encourage families to register now for the event,” said Kingsford. “We sold out last year and we anticipate selling out once again this year.”
It should be noted that stairs must be used to access both the balcony and lower floor of the Opera House for this event.
Kingsford also wanted to thank the community organizations which help support the event.
“To make events like this possible we rely on our city sponsors,” she said.
This year the sponsors of the event are Reece Construction, Real Estate Rock Stars and Lexar Homes.
