Under the Sea at the Father Daughter Ball

“The seaweed is always greener in some­body else’s lake,” Sebastian warns in Dis­ney’s The Little Mermaid. At the 2024 Father-Daughter Ball, the seaweed is going to be a bit sparklier.

When Lisa Cavallin saw the paper lan­terns used as giant candies at the 2023 Father-Daughter Ball, she thought of jellyfish. After going through the ball’s storage, it was realized that plenty of supplies were on hand to do an “Under the Sea” theme. The 2024 ball will appear to take place in the ocean, with mermaids, jellyfish, a giant octopus, and fish hiding in seaweed, as well as a coral reef. The colors for the upcoming ball will be purple and teal sea green with accents of gold.

The ball will be held at Clearwater Grille outside of Duluth, on January 27, 2024. Doors open at 5 p.m., and upon entering, attendees will have opportunities to enter to win a prize basket as well as take photos at the photo booth with sea-related props such as mermaids, a treasure chest, jellyfish, and an octopus. Girls will receive a token to redeem at the treasure chest for a party favor.

At 5:30 p.m. Pastor Scott Nelson will give a short message and prayer before dinner is served. With tables adorned with goldfish crackers and Swedish fish, the fare for the evening offers pulled pork, mac and cheese, fresh vegetables, dip, and a roll. Cupcakes are the anticipated dessert.

Following the meal, fathers will have the opportunity to dance the night away with their daughters. Gift baskets, beach balls, hula hoops, and the limbo will add to the merriment.

Tickets are available online only from January 1st-8th at https://www.firstbaptistth.org/.  At $25 per ticket and with Christmas just around the corner, a perfect present could be tickets for a father and daughter duo in your life.

Hello! My name is Haley Searls. I’ve loved writing from an early age, though my nonfiction writing at five years old consisted mainly of weather and gardening reports. I still have some of those early articles: “It’s sunny.” “It’s still sunny.” “It’s raining.” I’m glad to say my writing has improved since then. I wrote a guest post for the Silver Bay Public Library blog, and was the writer/editor of the newsletter for my American Heritage Girls troop. I have been writing for the North Shore Journal since June 2022. Besides writing, I love reading, drawing, photography, music, and spending time with family and friends. Two books that have really influenced my writing are Reforming Journalism by Marvin Olasky and Writer to Writer by Bodie and Brock Thoene. As a journalist, I want to share positive community interactions and inspire people to make lasting connections. Article topics that interest me are ones which show community activities and involvement. Such articles include community events, youth accomplishments, library programming, small businesses, local history, local artists and authors, art programs, and cultural events such as theater and dance. If you have an article idea, email the North Shore Journal with my name in the subject line! I look forward to hearing from you!
