“Family Fun & Flix” Joins Up with National Night Out to Show Movie, “G-Force,” at Meisel Park, August 2

SPRINGFIELD, NJ – The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders and the Department of Parks & Community Renewal are happy to announce the next evening of “Family Fun and Flix” – the free summer outdoor entertainment and film series – will join up with National Night Out to show the movie “G-Force” on Tuesday, August 2, at Meisel Park in Springfield.

“Family Fun and Flix begins at dusk, but come early to the park to enjoy interesting preview activities at 7:30 p.m. that are fun for the whole family,” said Freeholder Chairman Deborah Scanlon. “Bring a blanket or beach chair to claim your spot on the lawn or save a seat in the bleachers – either way, the early birds are sure to like the preview activity before each movie.”

Come to Meisel Park at 7:30 p.m. and participate in “National Night Out” sponsored by PBA Local #73 before the feature film “G-Force” on August 2. At dusk, sit back and watch the 2009 spy-fi Disney 3-D comedy about a team of superspy guinea pigs who do battle with a mad billionaire intent on conquering the earth by programming all the home appliances to follow his instructions. The movie features the voices of Penelope Cruz, Tracy Morgan, Nicolas Cage, Zach Galifinakis and many other actors.

The other dates and locations for this summer’s Family Fun and Flix are:

•  Tuesday, August 9 at Meisel Park in Springfield: Make a fishy craft project before the showing of the animated Disney/Pixar comedy-adventure, “Finding Nemo.”

•  Friday, August 19 at Echo Lake Park in Mountainside: Enjoy a classic car show by G-Wiz Auto Entertainment and the Garden State Chevelles before the animated adventure comedy, “Cars.”
