THIS SATURDAY - 7-10PM at 49 LAKE! OPEN TO ALL TEENS!
This party is all about having fun with your friends and celebrating being single! You and your friends can create unique conversation heart cookies, make candy-covered pretzels, get creative with duct tape, play Just Dance 3 on Wii, hang out in the comfy teen center (we have 4 couches right now!), and watch a movie that’s NOT ALL ABOUT love on our big screen while snacking on fresh popcorn. You’ll also have a chance to win free giveaways such as t-shirts, hats, bath fizzies and other spa items.
The entry fee is $5 ($3 for Teen V.I.P. and 49 Lake Pass Holders). Since the event is only open to 30 teens, advance registration is encouraged but not required. We also suggest getting here right at 7pm to take advantage of all the evening’s activities.
