Outings under $20: NWA Pool Movie Nights + RHM storytimes!

wilson park dive-in movies

The Wilson Park Pool in Fayetteville opened recently and features programming all summer long. The Dive-In Movies series, sponsored by the Fayetteville Firefighters Association, kicks off this Friday, June 10, with the animated movie, “Tangled.”

Fayetteville’s Parks and Recreation Department invites the community to come out and enjoy this unique experience – watch the movie poolside or from the water as it gets projected onto a giant inflatable movie screen placed atop the pool house. All four Dive-In Movies offered throughout the summer are FREE to the public; gates open at 7:15 p.m. and movies begin at sunset.

Concessions are available, so have a little cash handy to buy the kids some treats. You know they’ll ask.

The movie lineup for 2016 is:

June 10 – Tangled  (originally scheduled for June 3) has been rescheduled to tomorrow night.

June 24 – Max

July 15 – Inside Out

August 5 – Ratatouille
