TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Friday night was unlike any other for people that have special needs. Tallahassee’s North Florida Fair Grounds is packed with over 1,000 people who will get their Night to Shine.

This an annual event is put on by the Tim Tebow Foundation and Genesis Church. They are just kicking off Friday night's 'Greatest Show,' which is the theme for this year's Night to Shine event.

Friday night is all about making these beautiful people with special needs feel like royalty. Performances kicked off with a dance troop and FAMU's Marching 100 are expected to perform as well.

Jordan Ledford told ABC 27 she feels like a princess.
