‘It’s something different’: Morton Grove Park District Family Night offers, games, magic, rabbits an
The Morton Grove Park District is looking to do its part to bring out the kid in everyone when hosting its annual Family Night on Feb. 1.
The event starts at 6:30 p.m. at the Prairie View Community Center in Morton Grove.
“It’s a place for all the families in the neighborhood to have a place to go, especially in the winter time on a Friday night, to have something to do,” said Mary Mucci, recreation supervisor for Morton Grove Park District. “It’s indoors. There’s not much to do outside with all the snow. It’s something different than going to the movies or going bowling.”
Attendees will be able to take part in, among other things, crafts, board games and sports fun.
Mucci said the park district is doing its part to make sure Family Night is enjoyable for everyone.
Officials have invited the KidzMagic by Andrew magic show to take the stage.
“What got me interested is he’s bringing live rabbits,” Mucci said. “I think that would be nice for the kids who stay. After the show, the kids can play with his rabbits. … They’re very friendly.”
Last year, about 50 people took part in Family Night, officials said.
The event has already drawn people to register, Mucci said. The park district hopes 80 people turnout for the event. There will be a play area set up for the younger children. Also at the event, the gym is expected to be available for the older children.
The cost is $3 to participate.
Officials encourage those interested in attending to register in advance. For information, visit mortongroveparks.com.
