“Family Fun & Flix” Will Show a Movie, “Finding Nemo,” at Meisel Park in Springfield, August 9

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 show the movie “Finding Nemo” on Tuesday, August 9, at Meisel Park in Springfield.

“Family Fun and Flix begins at dusk, but come early to the park to enjoy interesting preview activities 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. on August 9 and have fun making a fishy craft project before watching the animated 2003 Disney/Pixar feature film, “Finding Nemo.” At dusk, sit back with your popcorn and enjoy the G-rated comedy-adventure about a young fish who winds up in a dentist’s office aquarium and his father’s epic journey to bring Nemo home.

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

•  Tuesday, August 19 at Echo Lake Park in Mountainside: Enjoy a classic car show by G-Wiz Auto Entertainment and the Garden State Chevelles at 7:00 p.m. before the animated adventure comedy, “Cars.”

•  Friday, September 9 at Warinanco Park in Roselle/Elizabeth (co-sponsored by OneMain Financial): Enjoy a fun fishy craft project at 7:00 p.m. and free popcorn before the animated Disney/Pixar comedy-adventure, “Finding Nemo.”
