Knightdale Outdoor Movie Night Series to Start this Weekend…at the Station!!!

Knightdale Outdoor Movie Night Series

One sure sign that summer is right around the corner is the beginning of the family events through the town’s Parks and Recreation Department at Knightdale Station Park. Beginning this upcoming weekend one of the warm weather traditions that family’s with in the local community has grown to anticipate, as the Knightdale Outdoor Movie Night Series starts on Friday, April 8 at dusk.

The Knightdale Outdoor Movie Series will open up with a showing of “How to Train Your Dragon,” on April 8, with the film beginning at dusk. Moving along throughout the late Spring and Summer months, three other showings are scheduled to date, with the next being “Rio” on Friday, May 13. Heading into June, the Knightdale Outdoor Movie Night Series continues on Friday evenings, June 10 and June 24, with “Home” and “Independence Day” rounding out the scheduled events.

The Knightdale Outdoor Movie Night Series is free and open to the public and in addition to the feature films also offers a host of food and refreshments for those in attendance as well. Local PTA groups from schools in the area will be hosting the concessions at these events, so not only can you enjoy a great night out with the family, but all proceeds from the sale of these foods will go directly toward helping each of the school’s who will be running them. For the Knightdale Outdoor Movie Night Series showings in April, Lockhart Elementary, while in May will run the concessions; Forestville Road Elementary will be serving up goodies. Hodge Road Elementary will handle the concessions for these events in the month of June.

Additionally, there will be another bit of Knightdale Station event “tradition” at each of these events as well, as the always popular food trucks will also have treats on hand for purchase throughout the Knightdale Outdoor Movie Night Series. Dust Donuts will be “at the Station” on May 13 and June 24, while C&J Funnel Cakes will be on hand on both April 8 and June 10. Jay’s Italian Ice will offer an avenue to “cool off” as they will serve up their icy treats on May 13, June 10, and June 24.

The free Knightdale Outdoor Movie Night Series takes place at the amphitheater at Knightdale Station Park and all attending are encouraged to bring their own chairs or a blanket to set out on the lawn to sit on.
