In an ongoing effort to promote family activities, while also emphasizing the importance of staying safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Wake Forest Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources (PRCR) Department is offering Mother-Son Superhero Bingo on Friday, March 12, at 6:30 p.m., at Holding Park Aquatic Center, 133 W. Owen Ave. Intended for mothers and sons (ages 3-11), the event will feature magic, refreshments, and a visit from a popular superhero.

Registration is underway at and limited to 15 mother and son teams. The cost is $20 per couple for residents, $25 per couple for non-Wake Forest residents, and $8 for each additional child. Participants are welcome to dress as their favorite superhero, but costumes are not required.

The PRCR Department will continue to implement safety and cleaning protocols and take all reasonable precautions to best promote the health and safety of those who choose to participate in this activity. Refreshments will be prepackaged, and seating will be restricted to one family per table.

In addition, state health guidelines require people to wear face coverings when in public places, indoor or outdoor, and around those who are not members of the same household or residence. As a result, participants will be required to wear face coverings at all times.

“The Wake Forest Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources Department is taking all reasonable precautions to best promote the health and safety of our community,” said PRCR Director Ruben Wall. “Public health is a shared responsibility, and it is one we take very seriously. We are continuing to follow local, state, and national public health updates and assessing our role in curbing the spread of COVID-19. We urge participants in all our programs to monitor their own health, stay home if they are sick or not feeling well, wash their hands often, wear a mask, and take appropriate physical distancing measures. These actions are vital to slowing the spread of the virus and protecting the most vulnerable in our community.”
