The Greater Downtown Council's Movies in the Park series, presented by ArrowheadOrthodontics, will begin Friday, July 8th, and run every Friday until August 26th. The Greater Downtown Council is hoping to have a great turnout again this year at Leif Erickson Park. Who knows what the landscape for COVID will look like at that time.

I think there are really good choices this year. Good collection of family flicks, and newer movies. The city would like to know which movies you like so they can have a good turnout, and also so they can obtain the rights to the movies. They have to get that so they can show them publicly.

It's a fun family night out, it's free, and you can get snacks and beverages or bring your own. The best thing to do is bring a blanket or chair and enjoy the night
