“Family Fun & Flix” Features Natural Wonders & A Movie

UNION COUNTY — The next evening of “Family Fun and Flix” – the free summer entertainment and film series offered by the Union County Department of Parks and Community Renewal – continues on Tuesday, July 24 at Warinanco Park. The evening will feature a display of natural artifacts from the Trailside Ecovan followed by a showing of the animated action comedy, “Puss in Boots,” which will give families a chance to enjoy an outdoor activity and catch a movie under the stars in a Union County park.

“Family Fun and Flix begins at dusk, but come early to the park to enjoy interesting preview activities at 7:30 p.m. that are fun for the whole family,” said Freeholder Chairman Alexander Mirabella. “Bring a blanket or beach chair to claim your spot on the lawn or save a seat in the bleachers – either way, the early birds are sure to like the preview activity before each movie.”

Come to Warinanco Park, on the border of Elizabeth and Roselle, on Tuesday, July 24 at 7:30 p.m. when naturalists from Trailside Nature & Science Center will display pelts, gemstones and other natural wonders found in Union County’s Watchung Reservation. Then sit back at dusk and watch as Puss in Boots goes on a heroic adventure with Humpty Dumpty and Kitty Softpaws in pursuit of Jack and Jill with their magic beans in the 2011 DreamWorks animated adventure, “Puss in Boots” featuring the voices of Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek, Zach Galifianakis, Amy Sedaris and Billy Bob Thornton.
