Teenagers looking for something fun and safe to do at night during the summer months are now in luck.
The City's new Summer Night Lights (SNL) program offers free outdoor movies, concerts, dances, gaming competitions, pool parties, and sports/exercise events at City recreation centers, pools, the Greensboro Sportsplex and Festival Park.
SNL activities start and end at different times, and all are open to all Guilford County youth ages 13-18.

SNL is an expansion of the City's popular Midnight Basketball program offered the past five years. (More than 3,400 teens attended the program's six Sportsplex events in 2012 alone!)
The premise behind SNL is the same as the basketball program: offer a structured, safe environment that offers events and activities during traditional high crime times for youth may help prevent juvenile crime or reduce juvenile crime rates during summer months. By offering a variety of events and activities at various public locations throughout Greensboro, the City's goal is to reach more youth from all walks of life.
SNL is a collaboration between the Parks and Recreation, Police and Libraries departments.
