All area youth are invited to hang out every Friday night this summer, as another season of Splash & Jam takes over area community centers. Hosted by the City’s Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Affairs (PRNA) Department and the Tallahassee Police Department (TPD), Splash & Jam, which originally began in 2011, offers local families and teens free, safe alternatives for late night summer fun.
Splash & Jam will feature a family-style pool party – “the splash” – from 7-9 p.m. As there is not a pool at the Palmer Munroe Teen Center, there will be water activities from 7-9 p.m. After the splash, teens will be invited to “jam” inside the community centers at themed events featuring food, games and music. The teen parties will take place from 9-11 p.m. and are designed for middle and high school youth. Each event will be monitored by adult chaperones, City staff and police officers. Below is the full schedule for Splash & Jam events.
