Norwalk, CT – Stepping Stones Museum for Children is back and better than ever and our return has really got us in the partying mood. So we are inviting all children and their grown-up sweethearts to glam-up and glow up during the museum’s early-evening, pre-Valentine’s Day soirée. Hearts will be a-flutter as the award-winning children’s museum transforms for its annual Sweetheart Ball on Saturday, February 12, from 4:00 – 8:00 pm. Stepping Stones will be rolling out the red carpet for children and adults for a heartwarming evening of family fun and entertainment.

We’ve turned up the fun for the return of this annual event with horse-drawn carriage rides in the bus circle outside of the museum’s iconic entrance courtesy of Allegra Farm, a red carpet debut, music, dinner, an enchanting ballet performance and lessons from a professional Broadway theater dancer Kelsey Connolly, a make-your-own cookie bar, a design-your-own corsage or boutonniere station, games and lots of the play-driven learning and kid-powered fun that has become a Stepping Stones Museum for Children trademark.

A lovely (and heart-healthy) candlelit dinner (a preset menu featuring choice of baked chicken parmesan or heart-shaped ravioli or vegan zucchini noodles, roasted vegetables or herb-roasted potatoes, a side salad and dessert choice of a Oreo Cookie cake or fresh-baked Silverman’s Farm pie with vanilla ice cream) is optional for purchase in the Healthyville® Café.

Tickets for this unforgettable evening for the whole family cost $10 per person for members and $20 per person for non-members. Children under the age of one will be admitted for free.
