Children Can Enjoy Evening of Fun While Parents Shop

The Newport News Parks, Recreation and Tourism’s dropshop_scYouth Programs is helping to give parents a break during the holidays. They are offering a program, Drop and Shop, that provides children with something to do while parents get items checked off of their shopping lists. On Saturday, December 17 parents can take advantage of the pajama party-themed Drop and Shop program at Brittingham-Midtown Community Center. From 5 PM to 10 PM parents can drop their children off dressed in their pajamas for an evening of fun. While parents are gone, kids can watch movies, participate in crafts, play games, and much more. The program cost is $20 per child and parents can learn more by visiting www.redefiningplay.com or calling 757-926-1400.
