The City of Lake Oswego in Oregon seems determined to give every Lake Oswegan an excuse to get out and enjoy the outdoors this summer. Whether it’s the Farmer’s Market, Art Market, Concert Series, or the opening of the new Sundeleaf Park, Lake Oswegans could have a busy social calendar just keeping up with what the City has to offer. This week it kicks off its Movies in the Park series with movies beginning at dusk at Millennium Plaza Park. It’s a walk-in version of the family drive-in movies. People show up early, with pillows, blankets and sand chairs in hand to stake out their spot for an entertaining evening under the stars. Snacks and popcorn are available for purchase to add to the night’s festivities.
“It’s good, wholesome fun,” explains Lake Oswego Parks and Recreation Events Coordinator, Kathy Kern-Schilling. While a popular venue for families, teenagers also come to hang out in what parents know is a safe, all-American atmosphere. Depending on the movie that’s showing, viewers might come in costume as well as they did for Pirates of the Caribbean one year. Let’s see…with Raiders of the Lost Ark and Toy Story 3 on tap for the summer, things could get interesting!
Here’s the schedule for this summer’s movies. Grab your date or grab your family and make the most of this free entertainment being offered up by Lake Oswego Parks and Recreation.
