About 200 attendees, wearing their Sunday best, filed into the Tyler Rose Garden Center to attend Tyler Parks and Recreation’s beach-themed 5th annual Daddy-Daughter Date Night Thursday in Tyler.
Each dad and daughter enjoyed a meal provided by Chick-fil-A, photo opportunities, live entertainment, a craft and a tour of the Tyler Rose Museum.
Debbie Isham, special events and recreation manager for Tyler Parks and Recreation, said the event provides an opportunity for dads to come out and show a young lady what a real date looks like. “That’s what makes it special” she said.
Chris Lennon attended the event with his four-year-old twin daughters, Alyssa and Elodie. Lennon said he attended the event because “it’s good clean fun, It’s really enjoyable and I think it’s a great thing.”
