In addition to NBA Hoops history being made, last Friday night also saw Birdie Elliott win the “Low Low Limbo” competition. She went home with a $35 Walmart gift card donated by Lucinda Lowe.

Kids also got the chance to roast their own marshmallows and make their own s’mores on “S’mores Night” during the prior week’s Friday Night Open Play on March 11.

The Community Center is a recreational space for primarily grade-school-age children to make memories and have fun, located in the Riverbender Building at 200 W 3rd Street in downtown Alton.

Every Friday night, the community center hosts “Friday Night Open Play” from 6:30-10 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at
