It's time to for mothers and sons to lace up the bowling shoes and get ready for some fun at the Rowlett Bowl-A-Rama.
The Rowlett Parks Department is giving mothers and sons the chance to have a little bonding time with its Mother Son Bowl event. The event is scheduled from 7 to 9 p.m. on Friday, March 15, at the Rowlett Bowl-A-Rama, 5021 Lakeview Parkway.
"This event gives mothers and sons a night out together to have a little fun within the community. We created the event so they could spend some time together and have a little fun," said Adam Richter, special events coordinator for the city of Rowlett.
This is the second year the parks department has offered the event. They hope to continue to grow the event and offer it annually.
"We had the event last year at the Bowl-A-Rama and they were willing to host it again," Richter said.
The event's activities will include bowling from 7 to 8 p.m. and games from 8 to 9 p.m. The games will include marshmallow towers, which will allow the moms and sons to construct a tower out of marshmallows and spaghetti. Additional games will include "minute to win it" activities, bingo, pictures and pizza. There will also be photo opportunities available so that participants have a keepsake of the event.
The cost for the event is $30 per couple with a $10 additional charge per additional child. The parks department asks all participants to pre-register by calling 972-412-6170.
The parks department offers a wide variety of classes and programs for children and adults of all ages. Information on the programs and classes is available online at www.rowlett.com or by picking up a copy of the Lakeside Leisure publication at the Rowlett Community Centre, 5300 Main St. For questions about programming contact the parks department at 972-412-6170.
