A Wild West Mother-Son Dance

Mothers and sons in Wasco had a very special time on Saturday, attending the inaugural Mother-Son Dance, sponsored by the Wasco Parks and Recreation Department. The event attracted over 60 pairs and had a theme of the Wild West.

Attendees came dressed in the Western outfits, complete with cowboy hats, blue jeans and boots. There was also a western-themed backdrop as they entered, with hay bales, balloons and horseshoes decorating it, giving each mother and son a chance to take a picture to memorialize the event.

According to WPRD Director Chris Serna, the idea for the event came out of a little chat. "Some of the mothers in Wasco were saying how popular the Father and Daughter Dance was in town, and that it was too bad that there wasn't anything for the mothers. Thus, the idea was born." With the popularity of it, it probably will not be the last. "I usually get embarrassed being around by mom with other kids, but this was really cool," said Jacob Hernandez, who was there with his mom.

After they entered into the tables, there was a crafts station where each son created a homemade corsage for his "date," putting it on her wrist when he came back to the table. It was a cowboy feast with hot dogs, chili beans, chips, cupcakes, water and juice.

It didn't take long for the dance floor to fill up, with both sons and mothers moving to the music.
