For the Opelika
As the school year comes to an end, summer programs and activities at the Opelika SportsPlex are heating up.
The Opelika SportsPlex will host a kids “Drive-In Movie” night June 15 for children between the ages of 4-7 years old.
The event will kick off at 5:30 p.m., and children will have a chance to create and decorate a cardboard cruiser that they can lounge in throughout the move.
The featured movie is “Ferdinand,” a story about a bull with a big heart determined to return to his family. It will run from 6:20-8 p.m. Refreshments, boxes and supplies will be provided and parents may drop their children off or stay for the movie.
For those that miss “Ferdinand,” there will be another float-in movie viewing of Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” June 22 from 7-9 p.m.
The movie is free for SportsPlex members and $5 for guests.
