Summer is just around the corner, and one of my absolute favorite activities to do in the Treasure Valley is to head the local park and watch movies with the family while laying on a blanket on the grass. It's an annual series that transforms parks around the Treasure Valley into outdoor movie theaters.

In Nampa, the Parks and Recreation Department sets up shop at Optimist Park (near CWI fields) for a couple of months during the Summer. Along with the great family-friendly movies, they also offer activities for the kiddos, concessions, and more. The best part is, the activities and movies are FREE!
