Willy’s Food Truck and King of Pops will be on hand with all the fixings or you can bring your own picnic.  Don’t forget your cooler for an evening socializing with your neighbors.

The bands wrap up at 8:00 just in time for a movie.  We’ve secured an advanced copy of the hit movie, Sing.  Come and see how the animals band together to save a beloved theater.
