Vintage Venue was full of lifts, twirls, baby sharks and Cupid shuffles Friday night as it hosted the eighth annual Father-Daughter Dance.

202 fathers and daughters were treated to a sit-down dinner, cupcake station, Shirley Temple bar and an interview station, where fathers had to guess what their daughter's favorite food is, or what they want to be when they grow up.

Photos were taken of all the dates, which were then put into a card that the daughters could decorate and write notes to their fathers and vice versa.

The families went all out this year, with many dates wearing coordinating outfits, and a group arriving at the dance in a limo.

It was Preston and Charlotte Gronemeyer's first time attending the dance.

Preston said he didn't expect the dance to be as big as it was.

"It’s pretty awesome," Preston said. "It’s a real fun time. I know Charlotte’s having a great time."

The dance was hosted by the Beatrice Mary Family YMCA, and was open to anyone who wished to attend.

"The dance had previously been held at the Y, but we were running into the issue of having to turn couples away due to lack of tables and seating," Jennifer Elliott, the YMCA Program Director, said. "Vintage Venue is not only beautiful, but they have the space and tables/seating to host more."
