Grab your lawn chairs and picnic blankets and head on out to Heritage Park this fall when the City of Slidell presents Slidell Movie Nights, taking place September 30, October 14 and October 28. The movies will begin at sunset, and admission is free.
“Film licensing restrictions prevent us from advertising the names of the movies,” said Alex Carollo, Director of the city’s Department of Cultural & Public Affairs. “But we do try to pick movies that both adults and children will enjoy and that are appropriate for families to watch together.”
The complete list of films can be found on the city’s website at MySlidell.com and on the “City of Slidell” Facebook and Instagram pages.
Guests are encouraged to bring their ice chests, picnic baskets, blankets, chairs (and bug spray!) to enjoy a picnic in the park. Bring your appetites too, because concessions from participating vendors will also be available for a nominal charge.
“It’s great to see so many people of all ages come out and enjoy these movies each and every year,” said Slidell Mayor Greg Cromer. “This is another great family-friendly event for our community and I encourage everyone to come out to Heritage Park and join us for Slidell Movie Nights."
Slidell Movie Nights began as a Leadership Northshore 2014 class project and the City of Slidell continues this popular outdoor event for families to continue to enjoy each summer.
Slidell Movie Nights is produced by the City of Slidell Department of Cultural & Public Affairs with the assistance the departments of Parks & Recreation and Public Operations.
