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. The Sanderson Sisters (wonderfully played by Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy), convicted of witchcraft in Colonial Salem, Massachusetts and put to death some 300 years ago, are brought back to life when the candle of black flame is lit. 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 Police and Fire Departments will be cooking and selling candy, food and drinks starting at 5:30pm and leading up to the event. All of the proceeds from the sale of the refreshments will go towards the Shop with a Cop Event. Free popcorn will also be provided just before the movie starting at 6:15pm. Grab some blankets or chairs and come with an empty stomach!
The “Shop with a Cop” program matches Fairview police officers with underprivileged children to shop for Christmas gifts. Not only does it build a positive relationship between the child and the officer, it shows a true giving spirit to those who are in need. Each year the goal is to increase the number of children reached. As the city grows, so will the number of children. This way the program continues to help many families in the future.
