Cinderella Ball

A magical night of carriage rides and tiaras awaits many princesses this Friday.

Fathers or father figures have the opportunity to take the ladies in their lives to the Seguin Police Department’s 10th annual Cinderella Ball at 6:30 p.m. on Friday at the Seguin Events Center — Coliseum.

“It’s a night where they’ll be able to dance, eat dinner, share news or anything they want to talk about,” Seguin Police D.A.R.E. Officer Hope Vasquez said.

The coliseum will transform into a royal ballroom complete with a sit-down dinner and dance for the expected 500 kings and princesses to enjoy, Vasquez said.

The Sparkles Boutique will open up for the guests to purchase some goodies for the event, she said.

“They can go shopping for makeup, jewelry, gift baskets. The Zontas’ will be making more than 100 gift baskets in different price ranges from $5 to $15,” Vasquez said. “We’ll have fresh roses that we’ll be selling to the kings if they want to purchase one for their princess that night.”

There also will be a candy station for the princesses to pick up a bag of sweet treats.

During the event, a silent auction will take place with several items up for grabs such as a spa day basket, dad gift basket, newborn/toddler gift basket and a basketball court.

Couple’s tickets are available for $45 at All tickets come with a wristlet for entry into the event and a free photo. All carriage rides are sold out, Vasquez, said.

Vasquez said she can’t wait to see all the kings and princesses make their royal entrances.

“It’s a magical night for our princesses to feel special. Just seeing all these princesses on their night wearing the big fancy dresses and their dads matching them,” she said. “The dads really go out of their way to come dressed up as well. It’s beautiful to see them together and a couple of hours together.”
