Children can bowl free of charge Saturday as the Shindig Family Entertainment Center hosts a Youth Bowling Appreciation Day 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

In a press release, Shindig invited children of all ages to enjoy two free games of bowling and a meal consisting of one hot dog, chips and a small drink.

Tomi Vaughn, the general manager at Shindig, said they want to give children an opportunity to learn how to bowl in a comfortable environment.

“This is an excellent opportunity to get our young bowlers involved in the sport," said Vaughn. "We would like to invite everyone to come out and explore our kid’s bowling program that provides scholarship money to all participants.”

Shindig, which opened on Highway 82 earlier this year, also boasts a full restaurant and bar, along with blacklight golf, laser tag, arcades and more.

Barry Allen, Shindig's media coordinator, said the family fun center is taking COVID-10 seriously and abiding by all orders from the Alabama Department of Public Health as well as an executive order from Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox that limits the facility to 25 percent of its capacity.

"We're making sure everything we do is to keep people safe," Allen said. "Hand sanitizer is available, and we're regularly cleaning the building."

Shindig is located at 5800 McFarland Blvd. Families interested in learning more about this event can call 205-650-7777.
