Press release submitted by city of Rock Island



Young girls and their dolls are invited to a super fun party with activities from around the world on Saturday, February 23, from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Hauberg Civic Center.

At the International Festival, American Girls will learn how to say a certain "pet" word in 10 different languages, and enjoy desserts from Italy, France and China. Each girl will receive a costume for her doll, such as a Japanese kimono, Egyptian tunic, Parisian or Swiss dress. Special props will be created to use during a Latin dance lesson, and the finale of the event will be a dance performance for their guests. Registration for this activity is $30.00, and advanced registration is required as spaces are limited.

The Rock Island Parks & Recreation Department has been hosting American Girl parties since 2010, with popular themes such as Hawaiian, fashion show, Halloween and cheer camp. Located at 1300 – 24th Street in Rock Island, the Hauberg Civic Center's "International Marketplace" will be open during the festival for guests to purchase additional outfits and accessories such as doll shoes, purses and blankets.

Pre-registration is required. To register for this or other programs, please call (309) 732-7275 or visit www.rigov.org and register online through ePark.
