YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - The City of Yuma Parks and Recreation is inviting the community to the mother-son Sadie Hawkins dance happening on Saturday, May 11.

There will also be a photo area set up and music will be provided for dancing.

“This mother-son dance will be a memorable evening with games, a short craft project, ice cream sundaes and of course dancing,” said Recreation Program Supervisor Marilyn Lammel. “Moms can also look forward to receiving a flower from their special guy.
