Hottest ticket of the year on sale
Placeholder Image

Judging by the demand last year, the hottest tickets to get in February are to the Manteca Parks & Recreation/Manteca Youth Advisory father-daughter dance.
This year’s theme is “Once Upon a Time”. There are two dates to choose from for the enchanted evening at the Manteca Senior Center, 295 Cherry Lane. They are Friday, Feb. 24, and Saturday, Feb. 25, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. each evening.
The event is designed for fathers, uncles and grandfathers and their daughters, nieces and granddaughters. The evening offers dinner, music, dancing, and fun.
Tickets thru Feb. 19 are $25 per couple and $5 for each additional girl. After Feb. 19 the tickets jump to $15 per couple and $8 for each additional girl.
Tickets must be paid for with either cash or check. They are being sold in advance at the recreation office at 252 Magnolia Ave. or at the senior center. The event may sell out as it did last year so there is no guarantee that tickets will be sold at the door. Due to limited capacity no spectators are allowed.
If you have questions call 456.8600.

The Not-so-Newlywed Game Valentine’s Day edition is Tuesday, Feb. 14, at 1 p.m. at the Manteca Senior Center, 295 Cherry Lane.

Kids’ Drive In
Movie Night
The next Kids’ Drive In Movie Night takes place at the Manteca Senior Center, 295 Cherry Lane, on Friday, March 10, from 6 to 8 p.m.
Kids from ages 2 to 6 are invited to bring their ride-on toy cars or power ride-on cars for an evening of games, making crafts, decorating racing inspired cookies, and use their imaginations to fix their “cars.” There will also be a short film while kids sit on their cars and eat movie snacks.
Parent or caretaker must accompany each participant.
The cost is $25 for residents and $35 for non-residents.
