Movie in the Park-Part I
The San Elijo Hills Community Association is hosting a FREE showing of Illumination Nation’s Minions (rated PG) as part of our summer movie showings!
Evolving from single-celled yellow organisms at the dawn of time, Minions live to serve, but find themselves working for a continual series of unsuccessful masters, from T. Rex to Napoleon. Without a master to grovel for, the Minions fall into a deep depression. But one minion, Kevin, has a plan; accompanied by his pals Stuart and Bob, Kevin sets forth to find a new evil boss for his brethren to follow. Their search leads them to Scarlet Overkill, the world’s first-ever super-villainess.
Minions will be shown on Friday, June 3rd at the lower softball field of San Elijo Park. Pre-show activities (including bounce houses, bungee run, a sticky wall and more!) will begin at 6:00PM and the movie will start at sunset (around 8:00PM). Remember to bring your low-back beach chairs and blankets for lawn seating! A few food trucks will be there and will have a variety of food & refreshments for purchase.
Come join us in the town square park for a foam party! Dr. Bronner’s Foam truck will be coming out on June 22, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. for a free foam party on the last day of school! The foam is biodegradable and made simply from organic soap, water and compressed air. Take the family down for music, foam, and fun!
