If there was ever a night to let the kids stay up late, this coming Saturday is it. True to tradition, the District of Invermere (DOI) will be hosting the 3rd annual summer Movie-in-the-Park at Pothole Park on August 4. Beginning at 8 p.m., the evening promises to be an entertaining romp for children with a host of fun activities in store until about 10 p.m. when it will be dark enough to show this year’s feature blockbuster film, The Lorax, on a large, blow up screen. The Lorax is the 2012 computer-animated 3D musical comedy film based on Dr. Seuss’ children’s book of the same name, while the family fun will include hula hoop contests, inflatable pony races and more.

The event is free and the public is encouraged to arrive early with blankets, chairs, and even mattresses to get cozy for some movie-watching under the stars. A concession stand with popcorn and drinks served up by Invermere’s own belly-dancing troupe will also be available. Bug spray is recommended and dogs are permitted on leash.
