Clarksville, TN – It is almost time to kick off this summer’s edition of the Mayor’s Summer Night Lights program and this year we are starting off with free 5-on-5 basketball tournaments for ages 14 and older!
Anyone wishing to participate in these tournaments must be at the location no later than 5:45pm to sign up. Free food and drinks will be provided.
Summer Night Lights creates a fun and exciting atmosphere that offers youth and teens a positive way to spend their time during the summer months. “Our goal is just to provide these communities with an environment that is fun and safe,” says TaKeisha Ivery,
Recreation Programmer for the Clarksville Parks and Recreation Department. The program will also feature a multitude of activities including a DJ, dance team competitions, local music artist performances, arts & crafts, motivational speakers, athletic competitions, and even free food! A meal is provided free of charge by Manna Café each night of the program. There will also be a step show featuring fraternities and sororities from Austin Peay State University.
What’s the best part about the Summer Night Lights program? Is it the free food? The wide variety of activities and entertainment? Many would say the best part of the program is that it is completely free of charge to attend and enjoy! That’s right, this program offers sixteen evenings of free summer fun!
