Morfa Empanada will also be at the Knightdale Food Truck Rodeo, offering several regular and even a dessert-like sweet empanada at the event.

Lets All Go To….the Station! : Knightdale Outdoor Movie Night to Kick off For Spring

Knightdale Outdoor Movie Night

With all the great family friendly, community events put on by the hard working and great folks at the town of Knightdale’s Parks and Recreation apartment, one that stands out among the crowd as a way of telling that Sprng is in “the air,” and Summer is just around the corner is one annual tradition that allows a safe and fun night out for kids and adults alike under your roof at  your new home in the Knightdale Station new home neighborhood, as Knightdale Station park is set in the upcoming weeks for the return of Knightdale Outdoor Movie Night.

The parks and recreation department will soon be releasing the kickoff dates for the Knightdale Outdoor Movie Series which in years previous, including 2017, has historically seen its first showing of the year on the second weekend in April, and obviously, the “feature film presentation,” for each movie night event is yet to be determined. The town also has in the past scheduled one Knightdale Outdoor Movie Night showing for May, and a pair of Friday night ‘flicks’ for the whole family to enjoy in June. All dates and movies to be played will be announced and updated soon at knightdalenc.gov.

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 last years’ Knightdale Outdoor Movie Night Series, Lockhart Elementary, Forestville Road Elementary and Hodge Road Elementary each handled the concessions on individual nights.

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. A variesy of vendors serving up so appropriate treats that could be considered ‘classic movie time fare,” and some that may not carry that distinction will be available at each of these outdoor screenings.

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