Snoball: Winter Garden
Students from all over the Mid-Valley came for the 63rd annual teen dance located at the Oregon State Fairgrounds Pavilion. The dance was coordinated by Susan and Blythe Adkins, event coordinators of Class Act Events Coordinators Inc., with the help from members from Willamette Academy and students from other schools that are part of the National Honor Society. The dance was held for high school teens ranging from the ages of 13-20 years old on Dec. 3 and went from 8 p.m to 12 p.m.
“I’m excited for Snoball because there is going to be a lot of nice props,” Mayely Polanco ‘18 said.
Snoball is a dance where the girl is asking the boy to the dance instead of the boy asking the girl and this year’s theme was Winter Garden. This year snowflakes, tree lights, and a bridge were featured as decorations for the dance.
One student suggested that they like Snoball because it gives them an opportunity “to be away from the house with my girlfriend for four hours,” Hayden Younger ‘17 said.
Some students like to attend Snoball because it is an opporbtunity to spend time with friends and to have fun.
