Event Photography at the Canada Science and Technology Museum: Imagine – A Mother & Son Ball


The Father and Daughter Ball is a wonderful tradition here in Ottawa that has been around for a number of years now. But the area was definitely missing the other half of the equation – there really wasn’t a Mother & Son Ball, until now that is!

The Imagine Mother & Son Ball was complete with fun activities throughout the Canada Science and Technology Museum, great visits from some pretty special guests, a photo booth, great food (plus candy!) and of course dancing too! And it was truly a huge hit with everyone and if that wasn’t enough, it was all in support of one of our absolute favourite charities, Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario!

This Mother & Son Ball really was the perfect mix of traditional elements of a evening of dancing and great activities to keep kids entertained. But I’m going to be honest, when I first heard about the idea of a Mother & Son Ball I thought ‘oh that’s going to be so cute’, quickly followed by, ‘but I don’t know very many young boys who would like a regular ball’. But the incredibly talented ladies of Opportunity Knocks Event didn’t plan just any regular ball as they had thought of everything and truly made a night that any child would absolutely love (and adults too)!

The night started off with a super fun scavenger hunt through the museum where the boys got to not only discover more about the museum and its artifacts and activities, but also got to meet sports mascots and personalities, superheroes, and Star Wars characters! They also got to touch some cuddly (and not-so-cuddly animals), talk to real firefighters and learn more about dinosaurs and fossils. As an adult, it was so much fun getting to watch them run around collecting their stamps and just generally having a blast!

Once things settled down a bit, they enjoyed an awesome magic show followed by a scrumptious meal, our very own photo booth and of course, some great dancing entertainment! All in all, it was a magical evening I don’t think anyone will soon forget!


A huge thanks to everyone who helped make the night possible and so successful!
