Happily ever after at Sadie Hawkins

Angela Yang , Asst. News Editor

The time of year has rolled around again for the princesses of Diamond Bar High School to take their princes to this year’s “Once Upon a Time” themed Sadie Hawkins dance, which will be held on campus March 10.

Students are encouraged to attend in outfits matching the Disney theme, anything ranging from full costumes to simple Mickey or Minnie headbands.

The event will be held primarily  in the gym, where Peter Pan’s shadow will lead students up the stairs into the wrestling room, which will be turned into a mirror room based on “Alice in Wonderland,” according to  USB Sadies coordinators, sophomores Anaaya Shah and Miranda Gutierrez. A variety of activities will be held, including a photo booth.

A large portion of the event will also be held in the amphitheater, which will have a Hawaiian-theme based on “Moana” and “Lilo and Stitch.” Activities include a bouncy house and games such as life-sized Jenga and Twister. A movie will be playing throughout the night as well.

“We’re trying to make [this year’s Sadies] more organized,” Shah said. “We’re really hoping that it doesn’t rain. That was a really big issue last year so we’re hoping that the weather’s clear so that we could use the amphitheater outside.”

The theme was chosen by USB after a round-table was held, during which members voted on ideas until a single winner was chosen. According to Shah, planning the events required brainstorming ideas to include all types of people and following a timeline.

“There’s a lot of things for guys too so it’s not just a girl thing, we’re trying to invite guys as well,” Gutierrez said. “And it’s perfect to go stag or [in] groups.”

Pre-sale tickets are  $15 with an activity card and $20 without, while tickets at the door will be $20 with an activity card and $25 without.
