Children to sleep over at the PEIF

The Northern Michigan University volleyball team and the NMU Recreational Sports Department will host the Winter Wildcat All-Night Party this Saturday, Jan. 19. Children in second through sixth grade are invited to participate in activities at the PEIF. Activities will be open throughout the evening, which begins at 7 p.m. and lasts until 7 a.m. Attendees can play volleyball, racquetball and soccer. Movies and popcorn will be available. The pool will also be open, and inflatable toys will be on hand for use. There will also be a climbing wall session and an opportunity to go snowshoeing. Head volleyball coach Dominic Yoder said the team was inspired to hold the party because it would be a fun way for the volleyball team to meet those interested in the Marquette community and have a fun evening for kids. “It’s a great opportunity for kids to come to campus, meet the volleyball team and experience the activities available to them,” he said. Yoder added that the team hopes to increase attendance to volleyball games and build community connections. Pizza and pop will be served all night, and activities will be run by members of the volleyball team. The cost to attend the Winter Wildcat All-Night party is $25 to stay between 7 p.m. and 1 a.m. or $35 for the entire night.
