The City of Fairview Invites the Community to a Movie in the Park

Halloween Movie in the Park On Saturday, October 20th bring the family out to Bowie Nature Park for a Halloween movie treat.  FunFlicks will be screening Disney’s Hocus Pocus.  The movie will begin at 6:30 in the evening.  This is a free event!  Get set for a fun family movie night in beautiful Bowie Nature Park.

This year marks the 25th Anniversary for this classic Halloween movie. Fairview’s ...
