MOVIE NIGHT AT THE PARK ~ GREASE


We almost ended up cancelling our outing for Movie Night at the Park.  It seemed that for one reason or another almost everyone in the troop didn't want to go.

But, Trinity and Brittnee really wanted to go.  Everyone was really happy we did too.  It turned out to be a super fun night that everyone loved.


We packed up the car with chairs, blankets, dinner and snacks and headed out to Central Park in Huntington Beach.


We got there a little early so the girls got to have some time to run around and play. 

We went down by the lake to see the ducks and click some photos.  It was so pretty out.  Beautiful weather.


They had some fun things for the girls to do.  Here they are racing to see who can get the light bulbs to light up by peddling fast on their bikes.


Since the movie was Grease, they had a fun backdrop set up to take photos with records and blow up guitars.


The girls were happy when they saw one of their friends from school show up too.   Ryan and his mom were there to watch the movie too and so they joined us. 


There were a lot of people that showed up.  This photo was taken early and by the time the movie started it was at least twice as many people. 

It was very nice though because everyone was very friendly.


They kept the crowd entertained and also handed out glow necklaces for free and even shot out t-shirts from a cannon.

Trinity actually caught one of the shirts.

The shirt was way to big for her but she had fun wearing it anyway.

The girls were so good!  Well, actually, they area always good. 

They had a lot of fun and laughed a lot.

The movie screen was super big!  We got to watch them put it up.  The frame is a blow up.  Sort of like those bounce houses.  Once it's blown up, they lay it down then attach the screen to it.

The sound system was wonderful.  It sounded like you were at a concert.


They also had some fun gifts to take home.  Things like little flash lights that attach to your key chain, lots of candy and some stress relievers that were shaped like light bulbs and hard hats.

Here Brittnee came up with a great idea!  Just like in the comics the light bulb over her head shows it.

Before the movie started, they were playing the sound track from Grease and other oldies.  The kids took turns dancing.  Brittnee decided to dance in her seat rather then get up to dance.

 
Trinity and Ryan got up in front of the whole crowd and danced.  I was impressed!


Then all of a sudden all of these girls started to come up from different places in the audience and got up on stage to dance.

It was really cute.  Turned out they were from a dance studio.

Finally it was dark enough for the movie to start.  As I looked around, I could see hundreds of glowing kids and adults.

Then it was time.


The movie we were all waiting for came on.  People were singing along and everyone had a great time.

We all want to go again.  It's a great way to spend a summer evening with friends and family and all for free!
