Party City throws community event for public

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.-The City of Bowling Green Parks and Rec and Party City partnered together to put on a community party for kids at Parker Bennett Community Center. 

There was live music, pizza, gifts, and more for anyone to enjoy for free from 1 to 3 p.m.. Omar Rogers, Parker Bennett Community Center supervisor, said this was a way to get kids in the holiday spirit as well as provide some positivity after the deadly tornadoes. 

A couple of other parks and rec centers also recently had events like this, such as Kummer Little recreation center.

Party City was looking for a location to give back to the community and Parker Bennett was the perfect one. 

“We wanted to bring them some joy, you know what I’m saying, cuz when you walk through the city or drive around the city, you see a lot of devastation. So hopefully this will help out, bring some gifts and joy to the kids,” said Rogers. 

Some of the gifts given out include toys, blankets, gloves, books donated from the Warren County Public Library and more.
