Saturday night must have been a time to dance the night away.

On this night, young ladies and young gentlemen were dressed in their best, and they were accompanied by some of their biggest fans—their mother, their father or perhaps an uncle or grandmother.

Nonetheless, the Mother-Son Dance held at the First Presbyterian Church’s fellowship hall seemed a tad more rambunctious than the Father-Daughter Dance held at the Jimmy Harrell Gallery of the Firehouse Center. Young boys were sliding across the dance floor until some mothers encouraged some line dancing and slow dancing.

The Mother-Son Dance, which was held for the second year, was hosted by Bennett Enfinger and Clark Wiggins. Enfinger, son of Lisa and Peanut Enfinger, is raising money to go on a Boy Scout trip to the Grand Canyon. Wiggins, son of Sylena Wiggins of Climax, is raising money to go on a school trip to New York City.

Sylena Wiggins said there were approximately 35 tickets sold.

The Bainbridge-Decatur County Council for the Arts was holding its second night of the sold-out two-night Father-Daughter Dance, said Phyllis Lucas of the Arts Council.

Deejay Martha Reynolds kept the young ladies busy with some limbo and funky tunes that made their “dates” dance like chickens and make faces with their tongues stuck out with their eyes closed.
