Family Fun & Flix in Warinanco Park Continues Tuesday, July 19 with Hotel Transylvania 2


Family Fun & Flix, a free summer entertainment and film series presented by the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders, continues Tuesday, July 19 with the presentation of “Hotel Transylvania 2” at Warinanco Park, on the border of Elizabeth and Roselle.  This year’s Family Fun & Flix series is being sponsored by Investors Bank.

The Drac pack is back for this monster comedy adventure produced by Sony Pictures Animation Division. Drac is worried that his adorable half-human, half-vampire grandson isn’t showing signs of being a vampire, so along with his friends he arranges for a ‘monster-in-training” boot camp. Combine that with a visit from Drac’s grumpy old dad and things are going to get batty at Hotel Transylvania.

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, beginning at 7:30 p.m.  Kid’s Yoga with Michelle Suarez will kick off the pre-movie activities.

“Last Tuesday’s opening night crowd for Family Fun & Flix enjoyed a fun evening in the park and we look forward to even more this coming Tuesday as families enjoy an entertaining movie and participate in activities that promote healthy habits for our children,” said Union County Freeholder Chairman Bruce H. Bergen.

All movies will begin at dusk, with everyone encouraged to bring a blanket or beach chair to claim your spot on the lawn. There will also be bleacher seats available. Also the Good Humor Truck will be on site hosted by TG and Sons serving ice cream and snacks.
