Harding University presents party with princesses, superheroes

Women for Harding will host the Sixth Annual Princess and Superhero Party from 9-11:30 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 20, in the Heritage Auditorium of the David B. Burks American Heritage Building. All ages are welcomed. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Snacks, crafts, activities and fun are part of the event, which also includes Harding students dressed as beloved princesses and superheroes.

Children are encouraged to wear their favorite character costume.

“This is our sixth year for this event that is presented by our community service organization, Women for Harding, and it’s going to be bigger and better than ever,” said Liz Howell, vice president for parent and alumni relations.

Eighteen princesses and superheroes are portrayed by Women for Harding scholarship recipients. A princess hair salon and other activities are planned. New characters this year are Optimus Prime and a special Lego guest.

“We are also honoring our community superheroes: police officers, firefighters and first responders,” Howell said. “We are especially thankful for our corporate sponsors who help us raise money for these scholarships and give a great gift back to the community. The smiles on the faces of the students and the children make the event magical for everyone.”

Tickets are $10 for children 2 and older and $5 for attendees 13 and older. Children under 2 are free. Tickets may be purchased at hardingtickets.com, Sassy Stitch or any local First Security Bank.
