Sonic’s annual Summer Movies in the Park is rocking all month with the good ol’ films such as Top Gun, Annie, Wonder, and Aquaman. Pre movie activities start at 8pm and the movie begins at 9pm. Take a blanket, lawn chair, picnic, and beverages to make it a full night out of relaxation and flick viewing. If you don’t want to carry all of that then there will be food trucks and concessions available. If the kids get restless during the show, then they can let off energy in the Children’s Garden or in the Thunder Fountain.
