A profusion of princesses

Annual Princess Party at Star of the Sea Hall raises money for White Rock Firefighters Charity Association.

Sitting on the shoulders of dad Troy, five-year-old Annika Van Vliet (above) talks with magician Doktor Strange at the fourth annual Princess Party held Aug. 24 at the Star of the Sea Hall Community Centre.

The event attracted 165 children – including 10 boys, for the first-ever addition of princes – and exceeded last year’s record, raising more than $13,000.

The funds will go towards the White Rock Firefighters Charity Association, which aims to build an all-abilities park on White Rock’s waterfront.
