Rockin’ Jump’s After Dark is the Ultimate Weekend Fun for Triad Families

Have you tried out the most exciting weekend event for families in the Triad? Rockin’ Jump’s After Dark is the ultimate fun for all ages and every member of the family.

Rockin’ Jump Trampoline Park lights up with neon/LED lighting and is filled with non-stop upbeat music during After Dark. It’s hosted at both the Greensboro and Winston-Salem locations every Friday & Saturday from 7-10 p.m.

Forsyth Creek Week

Forsyth Creek Week is just around the corner, with ample opportunities to get the kids away from the video screen and out in nature!

From March 17 to 25, 2018 Forsyth Creek Week will present nine days of fun, recreational, and hands-on activities, including many suitable for children. Events include guided bird-watching and tree walks, a creek walk for kids in Hanes Park, a Salem Creek “explorathon” with stories, music, crafts, and water activities, “family fishing fun,” water-themed storytimes at all Forsyth public libraries, a new Kids in Parks bike trail at Salem Lake and lots more.

Remember, studies show that children who spend time outdoors are happier, healthier, more attentive and less anxious than those who do not.

Forsyth Creek week is an annual event organized by 23 government and non-profit agencies in Forsyth County with presenting sponsor North State Environmental. See the full calendar of events at ForsythCreekWeek.org.
