Naval Base Kitsap MWR hosts a magical Under the Sea themed Ties and Tiaras event for Navy families

The Ties and Tiaras event was held on Saturday, April 29 at the Bangor Plaza Ballroom on Naval Base Kitsap and was a resounding success with a total of 191 attendees. Of these, 89 were children and 87 were ages 13 and above. The Ties and Tiaras event provided a unique opportunity for Sailors and their families to come together and bond in a relaxed and fun atmosphere, and it did not disappoint.

The Under the Sea theme was brought to life with the help of creative decorations, lighting, and colorful food. The MWR Staff transformed the Bangor Plaza Ballroom into an underwater wonderland, complete with sea creatures and oceanic elements. The food and drinks served at the event were creatively named and perfectly in line with the theme.

One of the highlights of the evening was the entertainment provided. The DJ played energetic music that had everyone on their feet, dancing and enjoying themselves. In addition, there was mini cupcake decorating, professional photoshoots (included with ticket cost), and games like freeze dancing and hot fish were played every 30 minutes to get even the shy ones out on the dance floor.

The Ties and Tiaras event was a break from the usual routine of military life and a chance for families to connect with each other and with their community. It was heartwarming to see parents and children dressed in their finest, enjoying the evening together. [View photos]

Events like Ties and Tiaras are essential to the morale of families and sailors stationed at military bases. The sense of community and togetherness that they provide is invaluable, especially for those who may be far from home or in a new place. The event gave parents and children the chance to interact and create memories that will last a lifetime.
