The City of Carlsbad's Community Play Date on Sept. 8 will give residents a preview of the many classes and activities being offered at their neighborhood community centers.
The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Calavera Hills Community Center, 2997 Glasgow Drive.
Attendees will have the opportunity to groove with Zumba for kids and adults; master the martial arts of Kendo, Tai Chi and Soo Bahk Do; and express themselves through watercolor painting and art for all ages through demonstrations of these class offerings.
Lori Swenck, recreation area manager for the City of Carlsbad, said the goal of the Community Play Date is to introduce residents to the wide array of activities the city offers.
"We want the community to come out and test the classes," she said, adding that the chance to meet the instructors will also "put a face with a name" before classes begin.
Other classes and programs residents can try out include preschool, Fliptime Gymnastics and tennis.
Swenck said the Community Play Date is an event to inform residents and unite neighbors.
"It gives the community the opportunity to come together and play together," she said.
