Eric Syms and Kyde Schwindt spy for treasure in Pirateland at the Family Place’s second annual Royal Ball on Saturday. The Family Place held the Royal Ball at McKenna Hall on both Saturday and Sunday this year to accommodate the high demand for tickets; children and their parents came from as far away as Regina to attend. More than 250 children attended the ball over the two days, which were nearly sold out. Different stations at the Royal Ball included Belle’s Beauty Shop, Prince Charming’s Horse Carriage Rides, Snow White’s Sweet Shop, Cinderella’s Slipper Shop, Mermaid Springs, The Tea Party, a dance floor and more. All funds raised at the Royal Ball will be used to support the Family Place.
