The first Grand Rapids 'Movie in the Park' is Friday, August 2.

It's great to have another way to enjoy summer in Grand Rapids, but it's a lot of work to make it all happen.

'Movies in the Park' is looking for volunteers.

All movies are free.  Each 'Movie in the Park' night begins at 7:00pm with food and other activities at Ah-Nab-Awen Park. Movies begin at dusk.  The series opens on August 2 with 'The Princess Bride'.

Here's more about what to expect, including other movies scheduled.

But it can't happen without volunteers.

Help is needed in the following areas:

  • Set-up
  • Greeters/Ushers
  • Litter pick-up
  • Info Booth/ID Check
  • Raffle Ticket Sales
  • Take-down

Children as young as 12 can volunteer with an adult.  Learn more about volunteering.
