It’s always one of our most popular posts – Free Summer Movies! We’ve updated our list from last year with details on as many FREE Movie Nights we could find for you.
There’s nothing more fun then grabbing your lawn chairs and blankets and heading out to the park to take in one of your favorite movies, and this year we think you’ll agree there are some great films being shown.
Be sure to bookmark this post as we’ll be adding to it as the summer progresses. Thanks to those of you who reached out to see when we’d be updating our post from last year. Sorry we were a little pokey 😉
