Tick-tock. Tick-tock. Can you hear it? Your child’s internal clock ticking down to summer, with its long, warm days and fun with friends? If so and you’re already starting to plan summer activities, the City of Snoqualmie has something that might help.
Back by popular demand, the City of Snoqualmie announced this week that it will be sponsoring ten, weekly “Movies & Music in the Park”events starting Thursday, July 2, 2015.
Last summer the Snoqualmie Parks Department hosted two very successful Movies in the Park evenings, with the outdoor showing of Frozen drawing over 1,000 local parents and kids sporting in their favorite Anna and Elsa princess costumes.
Responding to community’s desire for more similar events, Snoqualmie Parks and Public Works Director Dan Marcinko decided to increase the number of outdoor movies this summer.
Marcincko said, “We want these events to be about families spending time together in their own backyard.” He explained that the city’s goal is simply that parents have something to do right in Snoqualmie with their kids
The ten Movies & Music in the Park events are FREE of charge to all attendees and begin around dusk. Each outdoor movie showing will happen on a 70-foot screen at Snoqualmie Community Park, adjacent to the Snoqualmie Valley YMCA.
Music in the Park, which includes two 16-piece bands, will be in the amphitheater space at the intersection of SE Ridge Street and Center Blvd SE – right where Center dead ends on Ridge Street. Visit the City of Snoqualmie website for a complete schedule of events at www.cityofsnoqualmie.org.
2015 Movies in the Park include:
- Hunger Games, Mocking Jay
- Guardians of the Galaxy
- Despicable Me 2
- Big Hero 6
- The Lego Movie
- Return of the Jedi
