Wall-E final movie of season, Sept. 24

Thanks to community support and our wonderful volunteers (and the weather), it’s been a great summer for outdoor movies at the park! The September outdoor movie, our last of the season, is for the kids. Bring your blankets and lawn chairs and join us on the Town Square for the Disney-Pixar animated film Wall-E on Saturday, Sept. 24 at 7:15 pm. The Snack Shack will be open and donations, in support of next year’s outdoor movie season, are greatly appreciated.

A big shout-out goes to our Print Sponsor KnightHawk StudioLab, and our other great sponsors:
