From an outdoor movie to a three-band concert, free family fun abounds this weekend in downtown Mocksville!
Bring your family & friends to Downtown Mocksville for a free outdoor showing of Incredibles 2, Friday, June 21st. The movie will begin at 8:30 p.m. at the Mocksville downtown park on Main Street.
Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transition for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible. The movie is rated PG and is 2 hours and 5 minutes long.
A parent or guardian is required to stay with children during the movie.
Incredibles 2 is the second of five movies the Davie County Library and the Town of Mocksville will be hosting at the park this year. The other dates and titles are:

You’ll be filled with Respect when Phatt City brings on the beach, R&B, and dance music as they close out the night from 8:40 to 10:00 pm.
Phatt City is a 9 piece band that was formed in the early 70’s from a group of high school band directors. This is the fourth version of the group. There are three remaining charter members – Dan Vestal, Kim Heffner, and JP VanHoy. Phatt City plays the best of Beach, R&B, and dance music. Why the name Phatt City, you ask? The funny spelling came from that era, and the band has often been described as having a big “fat” sound. Now you know!
