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. A traditional "Halloween Ghost Story" turns into a real-life adventure for three kids who break the spell of the Sanderson Sisters. The story is an engaging one and will have even grown-ups pay close attention.

It's up to two teenagers and an 8-year-old to stop the wicked witches from succeeding with their sinister plan: to lure the town's children to their witch house and "drink" their life-force away from them.  With many jokes throughout, this is another example of a movie made for kids, but enjoyed by grown-ups as well. This year marks the 25th Anniversary for this classic Halloween movie. Fairview’s ...
