good dinosaurFamily Fun & Flix, a free summer entertainment and film series presented by the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders, continues Tuesday, July 25 with the presentation of “The Good Dinosaur” at Warinanco Park, on the border of Elizabeth and Roselle.  This year’s Family Fun & Flix series is being sponsored by Investors Bank.

“The Good Dinosaur” asks the question: What if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? In this epic journey into the world of dinosaurs, an Apatosaurus named Arlo makes an unlikely human friend. While traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of.

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 Zumba with Jessica Wojcik will kick off the pre-movie activities.

“As we continue our Family Fun & Flix series, we invite everyone to come out and enjoy a fun evening in the park and our entertaining movies, along with 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.

On Tuesday, August 2, Family Fun & Flix will move to Meisel Park in Springfield as part of Union County’s National Night Out program. The featured film will be “Zootopia.” The movies will return to Warinanco Park on Tuesday, August 9 to wrap up the series with the showing of “Inside out.”
