Movie Night, Camping in the Park, Saturday at Mill Pond Park


Saline Parks and Recreation kicks off a summer of fun and games with a movie night and family camp out at Mill Pond Park June 4.

Movie in the Park is a free family event Saturday evening. The event starts at 6:30 p.m.  There will be music, concessions and children's activities. People should bring a chair and/or blanket to watch the movie from the grassy field.

Some families plan to make an entire night of it. Parks and Rec invites people to camp out in the park overnight. The family campout costs $5 per person for a permit and breakfast. Pre-registration is encouraged but cash will be taken at the park.
