In 2020, Settlers Park in Meridian was bustling with families looking for ways to have fun together outside of their homes. But Friday evenings after dark? Things were a little quieter than normal.

That's because the COVID-19 pandemic forced Meridian Parks and Recreation to push pause on their Sparklight Movie Nights in the interest of public health safety. With conditions improving, they're excited to inflate the giant outdoor movie screen and welcome families back for movies in 2021!

Sparklight Movie Night happens on Fridays, June 11 - August 20. Movies start at dusk, but the screen is set up as early as 7 p.m. if you want to bring your blankets and low back chairs to claim a spot. While you wait for the movie to begin, the kids can play in Settlers Park's Sound Garden, cool off in the Splash Pad or grab some snacks from their concession stand.
