Movies by Moonlight at Hemisphere Park 2013Wednesday, May 29, 2013
Movies by Moonlight at Hemisphere Park has by far been one of my favorite activities of the summer.
I know it's hot, I know I have to find parking and carry a picnic blanket and snacks for four, but I love love love chillin' in the park, laying on a blanket, with a summer breeze under the Tower of Americas! It is one of those simple pleasures.
The movies are every Tuesday from June 4 - July 30, 2013. It also coincides with the City's Downtown Tuesday Free Parking initiative. Parking is free in city operated lots, garages and meters after 5pm.
There are also crafts and pre-show entertainment around 7:30 p.m., not to mention the playground near by. The movie starts at 8:30 p.m. Concessions and restrooms are available.
I am a working-outside-of-the-home mommy, so my tips are to prepare a bag the night before. I usually take wipes, hand sanitizer, snacks, and a plastic bag for trash. I pack a small soft cooler for drinks and grapes and store in refrigerator overnight. After work, I swoop up the crew and supplies, and plan to be downtown around 6:30. This gives us enough time to find a parking spot, walk to the grassy area under the Hemisphere Park arch and scout the best spot available!
