You know that is 5 minutes from my house-lol. I never knew they showed movies there. I have only been there walking a couple of times.

HOW FUN! My kids would love this. We have concerts in the park but not movies. I need to ask about this idea. Have a great day!

Vee said...

Thanks for the tip on a great movie. I am always looking for good ones for the grands to enjoy.

Hello name mate! I've never been to a movie in a park. This is the first time too that I've seen this concept. I'd love to experience one someday!

Tina said...

Girl, you always find such interesting things to do! We have to drive a few hours to find anything like this. Your old stomping grounds aren't what they used to be! :-)

ANNE said...

hey, how cool is that! love how its not a crowded scene, looks like a lot of fun.

Barbara F. said...

That looks like a fun evening for kids of all ages!! Sunset is so beautiful, you capture some really spectacular shots! xo,

LaelShine said...

We're having a similar event in our big city square, same movie too,lol. I cannot wait to go:)

Tina said...

I have gone to 'movies in the park' one time and loved it. It reminded me of going to the drive-in's when I was little!

As for kids movies.....I love them! Even if I wasn't a grandma I would still buy them!

I LOVE kid's movies and have always wanted to experience a charming outside showing like this...how lovely!!

Enjoy the week :O)

Hugs,

That is so COOL!! I would love to go to watch a kids' movie in the park. We do have a drive in movie theater near us and that's a pretty neat experience, but I think I would love the park setting even more!
And that sunset... :)

Lindsay-ann said...

It must be lovely to live so near that park and be able to enjoy those movies outdoors. I have only ever watched a movie once outdoors and that was in Florida too at Disney. I don't think the english weather is good enought to have those over here! Loved seeing your pics.

I've never been to a movie in the park, but it sounds like a great event I would love to attend.
How lucky you are to have a nice park nearby. I love taking walks every evening, but the closest park is not that close to my home, so I mostly walk around the neighborhood.
Thank you for visiting my blog and your kind comment.
Have a nice day!

Cindy Adkins said...

Wow, that looks so fun!! And beautiful!!

Della said...

This looks so fun! I Think I have seen this one, but I would watch it again! I love kids movies! I'm guess I am a big kid at heart when it comes to these. I loved Wall*E and UP, I actually own them, and many others! They are FOR the grandkids! (yeah, right lol)

I wish our town did this (in the fall).

Alicia@ eco friendly homemaking said...

Oh this looks like so much fun. What a gorgeous sunset!!

Mommyblogger said...

I've never been to an outdoor movie but can only imagine how much fun it would be. Glad you had a great time. Thanks for sharing!

Sheila said...

What a great thing for the parks board to do. It must have been fun for the families - especially those with young children or grandchildren. Once in awhile we've watched a disney movie like the Lion King together and it's something that all ages can appreciate. Enjoy the rest of your summer and thanks for stopping by my blog!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

What a fun way to spend an evening! Your park is veru pretty Diane. Hope the hurricane doesn't come our way!

Betsy said...

I've never been to a movie in a park before, but would go if we had them around here. Your pictures are beautiful and this looks like such a fun time. Reminds me a little of a drive in movie....those were the days:-)

HOW BEAUTIFUL!!! I was lucky enough to hike an Ansel Adams trail today. I am in the mountains in California. Don't you love the fresh air?

Paula said...

Looks like fun in an absolutely gorgeous place.

I haven't watched a movie outdoors in a long time but our club does it by the pool for the kids and our city has movies outside during the summer in a restored area of the downtown.

Mary said...

WOW that sunset it beautiful! We have several movie on the parks here and some on the beach. It's really fun, we enjoy going to those things. I love kid movies!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm here to follow back =)
