Family Fun Night (In A Box) - Feb. 27

Virtual Activity 
Dedicate a night for some quality family time. You provide the space (and family); we package up the FUN! Enjoy good old-fashioned board game, play some cards and get creative with a hands-on activity or craft! We'll also throw in prepackaged popcorn and candy for a sweet treat. All families must preregister by February 17; select custom game package at the time of registration. Families will be contacted to select their pick-up date and time. We invite you to share your experience with us! Take a family photo and email to parks.rec@jamescitycountyva.gov on the event date. Photo submission will enter you into a raffle for a family-fun gift basket - winning family will be announced on March 1!
