‘Movies in the Park’ back this summer

by Julia Langlois

The Municipality of Mississippi Mills is excited to present Movies in the Park for its fourth year starting Thursday, July 26th.

Each Thursday a family movie will be playing in a different local park across the municipality. These events will be FREE of charge and open to all Mississippi Mills residents and their guests.

The seven movies playing this year will be: A Wrinkle in Time, Jumanji, Sherlock Gnomes, Coco, Peter Rabbit, The Emoji Movie, and Paddington 2.

This event is a wonderful opportunity to explore some of Mississippi Mills’ beautiful parks, and a great way to get together as a community and meet new people. Everyone is welcome to set up their own blankets or lawn-chairs – whatever makes you comfortable!

Each movie night will be hosted by a different neighbourhood volunteer committee who will be planning pre-activities in the weeks to come. Pre-activities will start between 7:00 PM and 8:00 PM. Movies will play at dusk (or as soon as it’s dark enough).

Special thanks again to Rental Village Carleton Place for their sponsorship of these amazing community events. For more information or to volunteer, contact Lexi Welk and Julia Langlois at 613-256-3881.

We hope to see you all there!
