Movie at the Dike: Concert, Fireworks & Movie

This year, instead of holding this event at the end of the dike, we have moved it to the base of the dike in the grass fields behind Rainbow Park. Listen to the concert music, play on the playground and eat some great food from local food trucks while you wait for the firework show and movie top start! Bring your blankets and/or lawn chairs and enjoy the movie sitting outside. This IS NOT a drive-in movie. You are welcome to bring your own food and drinks, just be sure to throw your trash away so we can keep our park beautiful. See you there!!!

*There will be a sensory-friendly hour without sirens from 10-11am. However, kids will still have access to vehicles so we won’t be able to prevent all horn noises.*
