Endicott, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Hundreds of little girls spent the day prepping for a night out with dad at the Town of Union's annual Father Daughter Ball.

The girls could invite their dads, uncles or grandfathers to participate.

This was the 24th Annual Father Daughter Ball, and officials in the town of Union said this event is one of many people look forward to every year.

"It's the best part of being the Town of Union Supervisor, I see a lot of little girls dance on their father's toes," said Supervisor Rose Sotak.

Many father and daughter pairs have come to the ball for years. For the 12-year-olds, it's their last.

"I see some of the 12-year-old girls and even their dads who are sad because they won't be able to come back next year," Sotak said.

Next year will be the 25th Annual Father Daughter Ball, and town officials said they plan on making it a big event.
