MAPLE RIDGE – It was a night of formal wear and done-up hair Fri., Nov. 3 at the Maple Ridge Centre during the County Road 43 facility’s annual Princess Ball.

More than 200 attendees came from throughout the region to take in the main event in the former school’s gymnasium, as well as sample hors d’oeuvres, and later in the evening to snack at the ice cream sundae and candy buffet.

There was also a special tea party featuring Anna, Belle and her magical harp, and dancing with Aurora and Snow White. The night also featured a performance from two members of the newly launched Ashley Thomas School of Dance, and horse-drawn carriage rides around the centre’s lighted track.

“It was our third annual and was the biggest year yet – both in attendance and in overall activities and space utilized,” Maple Ridge Centre co-owner Rachel Potvin said. “It seemed to be very well received by everyone, and I just love seeing all the princesses having a magical night.”
