Parkland families have a chance to have some fun while keeping a safe distance.

Residents are invited to the recently rescheduled family drive-in movie on Saturday, August 15, at the Equestrian Center.

This time, the featured movie is an older one– The Sandlot. The classic 1993 film takes place over a summer in the sixties. It’s filled with the adventures of a group of boys who bond over baseball and life lessons.

Gates open at 7:00 p.m., and cars will be parked in pre-measured rows practicing 6-foot physical distancing in a way that makes sure everyone has a great view of the screen. The movie will start at approximately 8:25 p.m.

The City of Parkland is proud to host the drive-in movie free of charge to the community. There is no entry fee or ticket required to attend, but space is limited.

Social distancing requirements are in effect, and movie-goers will need to remain in their vehicles—or on them.

Golf carts and pets are not permitted to attend, and concessions will not be available, so residents should bring their own snacks and drinks.

“It is a great way to enjoy a fun family night out in a safe way,” said Mayor Christine Hunschofsky.

The special events hotline will be updated if any changes or weather updates occur at 954-757-4215. The Equestrian Center is located at 83560 Ranch Road in Parkland.
