Mayor Carlo DeMaria is pleased to announce that the City of Everett’s Recreation and Youth Development Department will host Skills, 3-Point and Dunk Contests on Saturday, Feb. 17, beginning at 2 p.m., at the Everett Recreation Center (47 Elm St). In celebration of the All-Star weekend of the National Basketball Association (NBA), Everett youth in grades 3-12 are invited to participate in the Skills, 3-Point and Dunk Contest. The basketball court will be split in two to divide participants into grades 3-6 and grades 7-12 for the skills and 3-point contest. Afterwards, all participants will join back together for a dunk contest to have fun and show off their moves.

The event will culminate in an NBA watch party beginning at 7 p.m. to enjoy the fun and excitement that the All-Star festivities have to offer. Those who participate will also enjoy food from local restaurant Fuentes Kitchen and live entertainment by the junior dance team of the Phunk Phenomenon Dance School – Lil’ Phunk – during the event.
