Despite the frigid temperatures outside, nearly 500 dads and daughters made the walk down the aisles of the HIstoric Holmes Theatre Thursday night to take their turn posing for pictures on stage, as the Grand March kicked off the annual Daddy's Little Sweetheart Dance.

After moms and grandmas snapped all the pictures they wanted under the 'Eiffel Tower,' each dad-daughter duo (or sometimes trio)  would exit the stage and head across the hallway to the Holmes Ballroom, where they enjoyed a light meal, dancing and crafts, all geared toward the event's theme, "An Evening in Paris."
