Parents can enjoy a much-needed night out in the Phoenix Arts District or elsewhere on First Fridays in March and May with the Phoenix Center for the Arts’ “Date Nite.”

Children ages 6-12 will get a camp-like experience with Phoenix Center for the Arts, 1202 N. 3rd St., from 6-8:30 p.m. With one performing arts course, a visual arts course, and dinner, children will have the opportunity to explore their creative side and make new friends while parents enjoy First Friday’s arts, food, and people watching in the nearby Roosevelt District.

All materials will be provided. Pizza will be served, but families can send their child with alternate food if pizza is not preferred or if there are allergy issues. Simply drop the kiddos off at 6 p.m. and get them signed in at the front desk. You can pay at time of drop-off, then come back at 8:30 p.m. to pick them up. Plan on your child staying for the duration of the program.

Cost is $25 per child. For more information, call 602-254-3100 or visit
