MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A summer program is hoping to keep Memphis teens entertained and off the streets.
Bouncy houses, basketball, and all different types of activities attracted a large turnout at the Ed Rice Community Center on Friday.
It's part of the city's 'Gun Down Safe Summer' at community centers to provide a fun atmosphere for the whole family.
"We have a community of people who may not have things to do, may not have food on the table, so this provides an opportunity to come somewhere as a family and not just sit around, actually do things," one resident said.
This is the sixth year for the program.
The program runs Friday and Saturday nights through July 29.
