We know firsthand how it can sometimes feel impossible to get a date night scheduled.

And when you finally get a night figured out (just me and you baby!)  — you can’t find a babysitter to save your (date night) life. Or the only sitter available is the one your kids make that face about when you mention her name (you know the one).

We wanted to kick off the center’s First Friday Kids Nights with a giveaway for 1 FREE FAMILY ENTRY to the July 1st event!

So what is First Friday Kids Night?

  1. Ice skating is the activity we have gone back to the Jones Center to do over and over again. Before the Jones Center, you couldn’t ice skate in NWA. It takes repeated tries and strong ankles, but it is a fun time!!

  2. My son loves to go swimming there with the big water slide and he loves the War Eagle day camp at the Jones Center
