The Apache Junction Parks & Recreation department will be hosting a free Movie in the Park event on Saturday, November 3rd! Bring a blanket and your friends & family for an enjoyable evening outside watching a great family movie. This free event will be held at Flatiron Community Park in downtown Apache Junction!
The November movie features the family Thanksgiving film, Free Birds. A lucky turkey named Reggie gets pardoned by the President to live a carefree lifestyle and not become Thanksgiving dinner. Then a fellow fowl recruits him for a history-changing mission: Travel back in time to the year 1621, just before the first Thanksgiving, in order to keep their species off of the Thanksgiving menu for good! The movie is from the Academy Award winning producer of the Shrek movies and features the voice talent of Owen Wilson, Amy Poehler & Woody Harrelson.
Gary’s Desert Dogs and Pura Vida Grinds will be the food vendors selling on-site, and there will be a Parks & Rec game booth for kids, both starting at 5:00 p.m. Free Birds will start at 6:00 p.m., after the sun sets and the temperature cools down out on the great lawn. Also, don’t forget about the Flatiron Park Splash Pad for those looking to cool down out at the event! The park is located at 100 N. Apache Trail, Apache Junction, AZ 85120.
