CANTON, Ohio — Father-daughter dances happen fairly often, but Canton Parks and Recreation mixed things up and held a mother-son red carpet event on Friday evening.

Mothers and sons were invited to put on their best red carpet attire and attend the event held at the McKinley Downtown Campus. In addition to music and dancing, the event had contests, door prizes, food and more.

The event wasn’t just limited to mothers and their sons. Canton Parks and Recreation encouraged aunts, grandmothers and other mother figures to attend with their boys as well.

Canton Parks and Recreation said that all of the money raised from the mother-son red carpet event will help fund youth and adult recreational programming and the upkeep and maintenance of more than 50 parks in the area.
