Tonight about 100 people came out to watch Despicable Me 2.
It was really an enjoyable evening. The temps couldn't have been better and it was great to see friends with their families, enjoying the park. Other than the lack of a true parking lot, and only having portable toilets, Windsong Park is almost better suited for the movie in the park than Marna O'Brien is.
When I was a kid "movies in the park" were at the Drive-In and we used to go at least twice a month back then. Being from Riverside, we had the Van Buren and the Magnolia Drive-Ins to choose from, though we occasionally ventured over to the Rubidoux Drive-In too.
I still remember being under ten and running around the playground near the screen. Well, there are no Drive-Ins anymore, so the movie in the park is a great modern substitute. I'm sure that many kids that came tonight will remember it well into their adulthood.
There are two more movie in the park nights scheduled for this Summer.
August 8th and August 23rd. On August 8th the movie is in conjunction with "Camp Out at the Park" and on August 23rd there will be a movie after the ribbon cutting of the Freedom Swing. (If you don't know what that is, please follow this link to read about it)
If you have kids or not, plan on coming out and being part of the community. See you there.
