The city of Rocky Mount Parks and Recreation Department strives to promote positive, family opportunities for residents.

In keeping with that mission, registration is ongoing for the annual “A King’s First Queen” mother-son dance that will be held from 6-9 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 21 at the Imperial Centre for the Arts and Sciences.

The event is for women with males ages 3-18. Heavy hors d’oeuvres will be served, and music will be provided by DJ. Uncle Mike.

Tickets are available at the Booker T. Washington Community Center for $25 per couple. Additional males are $5 each.

“A King’s First Queen” has been a highly anticipated event each year as males and their mothers use the evening to bond with each other and community members.

“Last year, this event sold out and we are very excited to see the response this year,” said Jamel Pitt, Recreation Supervisor for the city of Rocky Mount. “The mother and son relationship is critical for a young man, and this dance highlights that. A strong woman makes a big difference in a child’s life.”

Registration can be taken by phone at 252-467-4925.
