Season 2 – That’s a Wrap

by kingstonparksmovies

gallo park moviesKingston Parks Movies Under the Stars has just wrapped up another season of free, fun movie classics in our beautiful parks and public spaces around the city.  We had our ups and downs during Season 2, coping with an unusually wet and hot early summer, a few technical problems, and some last minute programming changes, compliments of Disney.  We want to recognize the special friends of our project who make up for all the bumps; great people like George Dawkins from Binnewater making sure we had Popsicles on the hottest night of the season in addition to ice cold bottled water every week, a real DeLorean on display for Back to the Future, book giveaways from the Kingston Federation of Teachers to keep our kids reading all summer, Music from DJ Jilly, Karate from Keith Bennett’s Karate Academy,  the Friends of Forsyth Nature Center, Creative Play with the Wayfinder Experience, fun snacks from the Kingston Candy Store and Shoprite and delicious popcorn each week from the Ninety-Nine Restaurant.  Special thanks to ProSound Entertainment for answering the very last minute calls for help and of course our team of volunteers, ranging in age from 6 to 64, who give up a big chunk of their summer to help create lasting family memories of summer and foster a stronger community.  Finally, none of this would be possible without our project sponsors who donate both money and time to make this fun community effort happen:
