Night At The Movies. . .

A new church that is launching in Spartanburg is offering free, yes FREE movies in the park. The 3rd Saturday of each month through August a different movie is being played at Barnett Park.

There are lots of incentives for going...FREE movie, FREE popcorn, FREE drinks, and chances to WIN gift certificates.

I thought this was a great idea and decided to give it a try. I recruited some friends and we tried it out last night.

Here we all are. . .

The movie starts at sunset and as you guessed it, last night that was not until 9 pm. We got there early to ensure a good spot. We all filled out a quick survey that was used for the drawing for gift certificates to local places. They also had FREE watermelon. I was very excited about this because I love watermelon!!

The kids and our hubbys played football over on the side before it got too crowded. A few people brought bubble machines which our kids quickly became a part of. My friends and I had some good conversation.

Before the movie started, the church holds several drawings for the gift ceretificates. You will never believe this (because we hardly could)! The very 1st name called out was my friend, Summer! I hope she enjoys the dinner she won at the Flounder!

The kids were having a great time playing together, but if the movie didn't start soon I thought we were going to lose them.

Luckily it started, and everyone (except Addie) made it through. We only had a few minor disruptions.
