Children’s entertainers, Rocknoceros, will hold a free concert Friday morning, Jan. 27, at the area’s newest athletic facility, the nZone. It’s at 14550 Lee Road in Chantilly, and the event will mark the kickoff of the nZone’s Care for Kids program.
“Care for Kids is an outreach of New Life Christian Church,” said Care for Kids Director Samantha Brissette. “It provides a safe place to play for kids who are not yet old enough to join the leagues and games the nZone has to offer. They can have fun while their parents get fit, take a break, watch a game or practice, or attend a class.”
The kickoff runs from 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m., and the fun includes raffle drawings at 12:15 p.m. for prizes such as free nZone membership passes, free child care and gift cards. Following the music concert, the facility’s Drop Zone will hold an open house featuring a free hour of EZ Drop, moonbounces and food.
“The Drop Zone is an enrichment program designed around the unique strengths and skills of preschoolers,” said Brissette. “Our goal is to provide an array of fun and hands-on activities.” EZ-Drop is an in-house babysitting service offered to both nZone and non-nZone members while the child’s parent is in the facility.
To give back to the community, Care for Kids is asking each child attending Friday’s concert to bring a non-perishable food item to be donated to New Life Christian Church's "Grab Your Groceries" program for families in need.
