Movie at the Park: Harmon Park in Kernersville NC

Kernersville Parks & Recreation Department, we had a fantastic time at your first Movie in the Park last Friday!  We had been anticipating the day, and we arrived early, allowing plenty of time for some playground play at Harmon Park!  You did a great job of keeping us entertained!  While we waited for the movie to start, we enjoyed an exhibit by Triple Tigers Martial Arts, which is located at 110 North Main Street in Kernersville.  Triple Tigers offer Tae Kwon Do, Hap Ki Do, Tai Chi, and Foil Fencing for all ages.

                                                                                        Brenda Villegas with Smell It! was the the lone independent vendor, and she had an array of colorful wooden flowers to which she added the scent of your choice.  You could choose two small roses or one large rose for $1.00, a small bouquet for $5.00, or one dozen large roses for $10.00. 

We sat way too close to the popcorn popper sponsored by The Kiwanis Club of Kernersville !  The delicious smell of fresh popcorn wafted through the air and added to perfect ambiance to Movie Night.

Special Thanks to Chick-fil-A of Kernersville and Arts D'vine for sponsoring this special movie night!  By the way, Chick-fil-A has a family fun night every Tuesday from 5-8... and you can check their event calendar here.

KPRD had a couple of contests for the kids while they waited for the movie.  The first involved a wet sponge race, and my daughter had a blast!  After that was a hula hoop contest... which was over very quickly.  Congratulations to the winners of both contests.

There was also dancing before the movie began, and I cannot for the life of me remember what the name of the dance was... but it brought me back to my old school night skate parties from twenty years ago.  And for those that didn't know the moves, there was a fun video to watch and help you with the steps.

And on to the main attraction, the movie "Up".  This is a story about a man who has dreamed big his whole life... and has his book of adventures to go with it.  He flies to South America in a house suspended by helium balloons, and discovers mid-air that the friendly neighborhood Wilderness Scout Russell has come along for the ride!

We also received a bag full of coupons from Downtown Kernersville business that sponsored the evening.  Please remember to shop local!

This was absolutely the perfect movie to enjoy with the kids on the lawn of Harmon Park!  The weather was perfect, the bugs were scarce, and it was really a great way to spend a Friday evening with the family.  We are eagerly looking forward to the next Movie at the Park on September 10th and will feature "Hotel for Dogs".

See you there!
