Kansas City young people can now register for Mayor’s Nights events, which begin May 22.
The annual slate of youth-oriented activities includes Club KC, in which people ages 11 to 18 can enjoy live DJs, dancing, swim parties, video games, arts, robotics and other entertainment. It also includes Night Hoops, Night Kicks and Night Nets for both young people and adults.
Registration is open at kcmayor.org/mayorsnights. People can complete the form online or fill out and turn in a printed form at any participating community center.
A special registration event is planned from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at Brush Creek Community Center, 3801 Cleaver Blvd. The event will feature entertainment, snacks and prizes and is open to anyone interested in Club KC or the Mayor’s Nights athletic activities.
The Mayor’s Nights kickoff is 6 p.m. May 22 at Tony Aguirre Community Center, 2050 West Pennway.
The city’s summer curfew also runs from May 22 to Sept. 27 and will be enforced by an increased police presence. For minors 15 and younger, the curfew is 10 p.m. in most parts of the city. For minors 16 and 17, it is 11 p.m. in most city sectors.
Five entertainment districts — the Plaza, Westport, downtown, 18th and Vine, and Zona Rosa — require anyone under age 18 to be accompanied by a parent or guardian after 9 p.m.
Registration for Night Hoops, Night Kicks and Night Nets closes June 6. Registration for Club KC remains open all summer. Registrants receive a free VIP card, which is required to participate in Mayor’s Nights events. People who already have a VIP card from previous years do not need to re-register.
