Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away, and Arkadelphia’s Parks and Recreation department wants to help you celebrate!
On Friday, February 11, Parks and Rec will be hosting its “Valentine’s Day Parent’s Night Out!” event. Designed for children ages 5-12, parents will be able to drop their children off at the Recreation Center for a night of Valentine’s Day crafts, board games, basketball and more!
A pizza dinner will be provided, along with soda and/or water.
“This is the kind of event where everyone wins,” Kathryn Nichols, Recreation Center Operations Manager, says. “Parents get a night out, and the kids get to have a fun, Valentine’s Day party with their friends.”
To attend, parents and guardians will have to a pay a $15 fee for their first child, and $10 for each additional child.
Drop off will begin at 6:00 p.m. and end at 6:20 p.m.
Pick up will begin at 9:00 p.m. Starting at 9:15 p.m., parents will have to pay a $10 fee for picking up their child late.
Spots are limited. To register, visit the Rec Center at 2555 Twin Rivers Drive, or call 870-246-5499.
