Join us for a free showing of The Incredibles (2004) under the stars in Normandy Park. This movie is clever and fun, with a star-studded cast. It's great for all ages.
Light refreshments will be sold, but feel free to pack your own picnic.
Don't forget to bring a blanket, lawn chair and bug spray, but NO CAPES! ;)
Come on out on the 4th! Our bike parade will leave from Chestnutwold Elementary at 10:00am and end up at Elwell Field, where the festivities will begin with a "best-decorated" bike/stroller/wagon contest. Then, if you’re hot, get under the Big Splash! If you’re hungry, hot dogs, pretzels, water ice, baked goods, and cold drinks will be available for purchase. Kids and adults can participate in the 40-yard dash, 3-legged race, sack race, and water balloon toss.
There is no rain date for this event. If the weather is questionable, please check back here to verify the event’s status.
