Jerseyville Parks and Recreation Department (JPRD) is once again offering a very magical night for moms and sons this spring! The Mom & Son Fiesta will be on Friday, May 8 from 6-8:30pm at the Susnig Center, located at 401 Mound Street, Jerseyville, IL 62052. Last year, 120 participants made lasting memories at the special event. Celebrate Mother's Day this year with this sizzling evening that will be filled of special memories that will include pizza, dessert, music by a professional DJ, dancing and other activities.

The event is for boys three to 12 years old and their moms, stepmoms, grandmas or guardians. Feel free to dress casual or get decked out for this special event. A photo of each couple will be taken and ready for pick-up the following Wednesday at the Susnig Center (pictures will be discarded if not picked-up by 6/13). Feel free to bring your camera for snap shots of the evening. This memorable night is all inclusive for $15 per person. For those moms that are extra special and blessed with multiple sons between the age of three to 12, all are welcome for the per person fee. The event is open to both residents and non-residents. Space is limited and registration must be completed by Friday, May 1, 2015 by 3pm!
