What better way is there to spend a Friday night than with friends, family, food, and a movie in the park. Lexington County Recreation and Aging Commission as well as the Town of Lexington, SC are to thank for this great experience. One of the most popular animated movies, “Moana”, is being featured for no charge on June 2nd at 8:30 pm. So bring your favorite snacks, a towel or even a beach chair to view this movie on a giant blow-up screen at the Gibson Road Soccer Complex. Roy’s Grille will also be providing food for purchase. If you can’t make this movie, don’t worry! Movies in the Park are occurring throughout the rest of June and July. For more information, click here.
