Hey kids! I wanted to share something special with you! Dana Point has something they do called Movies In The Park. It is exactly what it sounds like. You go out to Lantern Bay Park (which has an amazing view of the harbor by the way), hang out until the sun goes down and watch a movie! And it’s FREE!!! It is brought to you by the same folks who tried bringing Drive-In movies back to the OC Fairgrounds. (I’m still mad it never took off.)
I first did this 2 weeks ago. We watched Monsters Vs. Aliens. As you can guess by the movie, this is a very family-friendly atmosphere. Tonight they will be showing The Wizard of Oz. I’ll be there! Will you? Look for me and say hi!
Be sure to bring a nice big blanket and some picnic items! They have a snack bar where everything is $1 with all the proceeds going to charity. Also, if you get there early enough there are 2 fire pits. And please, if you are going to bring lawn chairs, please make sure they are not tall as a courtesy to the people around (behind) you.
I have also seen something for outdoor movies in Newport Beach on Saturday nights, but I don’t have much information on that. But feel free to check it out and if it’s awesome, let us know!
