Twelve debutantes and their squires will step into the limelight tomorrow night at the annual Civic Ball.
The Ball will be the first major community event to be staged at the Civic Centre since refurbishment of the venue began last year.
Mayor Darriea Turley said she was certain the night would be a memorable one for participants, families, and guests.
"The Civic Ball is such a great local tradition, and one of the biggest events on our social calendar," she said.
"It's a chance for families and guests to gather and spend an evening celebrating this city's younger generation."
However Cr Turley said the night was more than just an evening gala, and represents the culmination of months of preparation.
"It's not all about the glitz and glamour, we should remember that all our debs have put in a lot of hard work for this event," she said.
"They've undertaken numerous dancing lessons in their own time to ensure they're ready to put on a fine performance at the Ball.
"Acknowledgement should also go to the late Andrew Bevarne for instructing our debs in their dance routine, and also all the Council staff who have worked tirelessly to make this event happen."
The Civic Ball will be held on May 12, with doors opening at 6pm.
Andrew Schmidt will act as Master of Ceremonies, and will commence formal proceedings at 7pm.
