DUBOIS – The cast and crew of the upcoming film, “Three Prodigal Kings,” have party plans that will unite people at the first-ever all-night community event, “Friday Night Lights.”
They are hoping others will join them in taking a stand against heroin overdose and drug/alcohol abuse, as well as in promoting a “healthy nightlife.”
This is a free, non-profit event that will be suitable for kids, teens and adults. Participants and fans will be invited from all across Pennsylvania.
It will be a night of dancing, food, sports, activities and prizes, plus a few surprises from the “ambitious, young and talented film cast.”
The event will take place June 29, with the party beginning at 8 p.m. and closing out at 3 a.m., at the DuBois City Park. The event line-up includes the:
- Kid’s Corner (grade eight and under), from 8 p.m. – 10 p.m.
- photo-shoot with the film’s characters in the DuBois YMCA’s auxiliary gymnasium. DuBois Dream players will also be on-hand around 8 p.m. for photos.
- basketball tournament for grades four through eight on the court at the city park.
- volleyball tournament for grades four through eight on the court (beside the basketball courts) at the city park.
- Luigi’s Ristorante snack bar under the pavilion.
- live music from Rick Chew and his wife at the park’s amphitheater.
- party from 10 p.m. – 1 a.m.
- scavenger hunt (grades nine through twelve) featuring film characters and DuBois City police along the walkway.
- five-on-five basketball, volleyball and backyard football tournaments for ages 18 years and older.
- dancing and music with DJ XXL at the amphitheater.
- cast takeover from 1 a.m. – 2 a.m. Cast members will be in action and you will be in the middle of their battle with police before footage is projected onto the big screen.
- finale with DJ Dirty White Boy, from 2 a.m. – 3 a.m., to drive home the message, “No More Drugs!”
Any basketball and volleyball teams must be submitted before June 15. Participating athletes will be required to sign a waiver, and there will not be any exceptions.
All minors must have a form signed by their parent or legal guardian. DuBois City police will be present to ensure safety and positive behavior.
Pavilions will be open for cook-outs and attendees are strongly encouraged to bring food to share. A donation for musical artists, Bilger’s Rocks and the cause will be accepted by event organizers.
