Palo Alto teens are invited to a dance with black lights, lasers, games, food and student DJs Saturday, March 31, at Lucie Stern Community Center.
"Hit the Lights," described as an "all-encompassing event," is sponsored by the Palo Alto Teen Advisory Board, a city-sponsored group charged with "representing and supporting the diverse voices of the Palo Alto community."
The group meets biweekly to plan events for high school students and help run events for middle school students.
"After hearing concerns that the Palo Alto youth were overwhelmingly stressed, the advisory board began planning a night high schoolers in Palo Alto would never forget," the advisory board said in a press release.
Supported by the Palo Alto Recreation Foundation, "Hit the Lights" is open to all high school students who live or go to school in Palo Alto.
"The event features a dance floor equipped with lasers and black lights that are provided by Tribal Existance, known for their recent work at the Grammys. Along with state-of-the-art audio and lighting equipment, the dance floor will also be a platform for three student DJs from Palo Alto to perform.
"Along with dancing, 'Hit the Lights' features a game room, a lounge and food served from Palo Alto's finest restaurants."
Saturday's event starts at 8 p.m. and is open to all current high school students in Palo Alto. Tickets, at $5, can be purchased at the front desk of Lucie Stern Community Center and in T-2 at Cubberley Community Center or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
