Newport News Community Center Events Happening this Week

Posted on February 9, 2017 at 8:07 AM by Communications Department

Newport News Community Centers are offering fun and free activities during the month of February. Coming up this Friday is Craft daycraft1_sc and Free Family Movie day, a great way to have fun with the family at zero cost to you!

Stop by Denbigh Community Center this Friday from 3:30 - 5 PM to make Valentine’s Day themed crafts! Kids can make roses out of hand prints, animals and bugs out of different shaped hearts, and more! After you’re finished with your crafts, visit Brittingham-Midtown Community Center at 6 PM for door prizes, giveaways and games followed by the showing of the movie Trolls at 7 PM. Enjoy special appearances by the star Trolls characters, Branch and Poppy! Kids can even be a part of a “Trollify Yourself” contest and be entered to win a special prize! Visit to create your own Troll. Then, share and “check in” your trolls_SCTroll on the Brittingham-Midtown Community Center Facebook page @nnparksBMCC. Submissions are due by noon on February 10, before the event. This movie is free and open to the public, but space is limited. Please register in advance by going online or by calling 591-4853.
