The fun begins with Family, Fun, and Flix on July 9 at 7:30 p.m. at Wheeler Park in Linden. As part of the evening’s events, UC Get Fit, a health initiative of the Union County Freeholder Board, will offer fitness fun for kids before the movie. Immediately after at dusk the movie A Dogs Way Home will begin.
