The last of this summer's popular Movies in the Park will take place on Friday, August 22 at Ah-Nab-Awen Park. Screening of the voter's choice, The Sandlot, will start at dusk. Following that, Jurassic Park will screen. Both films were produced in the the early '90s, finishing off the "Films Through Time" series that began with the 1940's-based Raiders of the Lost Ark.

This week's activities will be provided by the Grand Rapids Children's Museum with live music performed by Hark Up Horns Big Band. There will also be face painting and a chance to win a $100 gift card from Founders Brewing Company. 

Food vendors this week include GoNuts, What the Truck, Daddy Pete's BBQ, Vito's Pizza, Dorothy and Tony's Gourmet Kettle Corn, Ferris Coffee and Love's Ice Cream. 

Downtown Grand Rapids Inc. (DGRI) and Friends of Grand Rapids Parks (FGRP) have teamed up to present the event. Celebration Cinema has sponsored the series this entire season with this week's other sponsorships including title sponsor by Apropos and community sponsor Mosaic Film Experience. 

Apropos and Mosaic will both show video shorts before the double feature.
