The Norwalk Park and Recreation department is bringing back the "5th Quarter."

The event, scheduled for 9:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. Saturday at the Ernsthausen Community Center, is designed to give local teens a place to hang out after high school games.

Local band Splitt will play live music Saturday and a variety of activities also will be provided, including basketball, wallyball and dodgeball. Pizza and pop will be provided and included in the cost. The event costs $5 per person and is open to students in grades seven through 12.

"It gives kids a place to hang out after the game," Norwalk Park and Recreation Superintendent Ken Leber said. The department held similar events several years ago and had "a couple hundred people" come out. Leber added the department plans to put the 5th Quarter events on again in the fall, following Norwalk and St. Paul home football games.

St. Paul's basketball team hosts Sandusky St. Mary's Central Catholic at 7:30 Saturday night.
