‘Movies in the Parks’ begin Saturday

Tuesday, May 16, 2017

The Berryville Parks Department and the Berryville Public Library are partnering for the second summer to bring “Movies in the Parks,” a series of free family events, to the community.

Movies in the Parks are community events consisting of games and a movie. Parks Department manager Renée Allison has coordinated with library director Julie Hall to plan the four events, which will take place on the third Saturday of each month from May through August.

The first movie shown will be “A Dog’s Purpose” on Saturday, May 20, at the A.L. Carter Ball Field. The event starts at 6:30 p.m. with ultimate Frisbee, agility courses and a free hot dog dinner. The movie will start at sunset and be shown outdoors, so families are encouraged to bring chairs and blankets.

Movies in the Parks will feature “Batteries Not Included” on Saturday, June 17, at Pioneer Park, and the movie will be shown inside the library. The events will include balsa wood gliders and fun with circuits.

The series will feature “Dolphin Tale 2” on Saturday, July 15, at the City Pool and have pool games for families.

The final film of the summer will be “Because of Winn Dixie” on Saturday, Aug. 19, at the Berryville Community Center campus. There will be a playground dedication and tours of the new Giving Garden. The movie will be shown at the library.

The Berryville Library’s Summer Program theme is community building. The program’s movie selections and events echo that theme and will feature a team building game at each event.

The Berryville Library and Parks Department will partner to bring these free events to the public. Both organizations hope to promote the spirit of community and family fun at these events and encourage families and individuals to come out and enjoy an evening in the parks.
