Drive 'n' Dine Movie Night
Thursday, August 2, 2018
Location: Oswego Park and Ride (1000 Station Dr, Oswego)
The Yorkville Parks and Recreation Department and the Village of Oswego are joining together to host a Drive-In Movie! Families will enjoy bounce houses, activities, food and more from 7:00-8:00pm. Then at dusk, get comfortable in your car and watch the movie, Coco, on a 30-foot inflatable screen! This is a free event to participate; however, food and drink are available for purchase.
The two communities have joined together to show ‘Coco’ on the giant inflatable screen for a real drive-in movie experience with this soon-to-be classic from Pixar. Join aspiring musician Miguel on his unforgettable journey to the Land of the Dead to find his great-great-grandfather, a legendary singer, and overturn his family’s ancestral ban on music. Coco is recommended for ages 7 and up by Common Sense Media.
Tune your car’s radio into the radio station announced at the event grounds to listen to the film’s audio, featuring an Oscar-winning soundtrack, from the comfort of your car. Plus, enjoy pre-movie activities for the kids, a bounce house, and food vendors including The Wurst Kitchen, Kona Ice, and the adjacent Steve Buresh’s Cheesecake and Sandwich Shop, who will offer tempting food and treats for sale to enjoy while you watch the film. A portion of the lot will be reserved up front for movie-goers who want to watch up close. Bring your chairs to stake out a spot. Bring the whole family! The Dine N Drive at the Park N Ride is a free event for all ages, brought to you by a shared services partnership between the United City of Yorkville and the Village of Oswego to provide more services to our residents more efficiently.
The Park N Ride lot is located at the north end of Station Drive in Oswego, navigable by GPS at 1000 Station Drive, Oswego. Before the movie, join elected officials from Oswego and Yorkville to learn more about the BNSF train corridor and what our communities are doing to secure funding to bring Metra commuter rail service to Kendall County.
