Looking for a little free, family-friendly fun this week? Downtown Mocksville has two events this Friday, June 20th, that will delight family members of all ages!
Progressive Storybook From Noon – 1:30 p.m. at the Downtown Park
Mocksville’s new downtown park is the perfect place to enjoy a picnic and a story. You won’t want to miss the progressive storybook, “The Bear Ate Your Sandwich,” from noon to 1:30 p.m.
Participants will be led through a series of storyboards that share the charming story of a bear and a sandwich, followed by some cold refreshments.
This free family event is sponsored by the Davie County Public Library and the Town of Mocksville.
Bring your lunch or purchase one from our local restaurants and bring a chair or a blanket for seating.
The storyboards will be left in place until 5 p.m. for those who are unable to attend the event.
Free Outdoor Movie at 8:45 p.m. at the Downtown Park
Who can resist a movie under the stars? Head back downtown Friday night for a free outdoor showing of A Dog’s Purpose. The movie will begin at 8:45 p.m. at the new downtown park on Main Street.
A Dog’s Purpose is the story of a devoted dog who discovers the meaning of its own existence through the lives of the humans it teaches to laugh and love. Reincarnated as multiple canines over the course of five decades, the lovable pooch develops an unbreakable bond with a kindred spirit named Ethan. As the boy grows older and comes to a crossroad, the dog once again comes back into his life to remind him of his true self. Warning, this is a tearjerker!! PG — 98 minutes.
A Dog’s Purpose is the second of four movies that the Davie County Library and the Town of Mocksville will be hosting at the park. The other dates and titles are:
Friday, Aug. 17 BLACK PANTHER…2 HRS. 14 MINUTES…PG
Friday, Sept. 21 TANGLED…140 MINUTES…PG
Please bring your own chair or a blanket for seating. Feel free to bring your own popcorn or snacks or purchase from SCOOP’S Ice Cream, The Factory Coffee House, or our other local restaurants.
A PARENT OR GUARDIAN IS REQUIRED TO STAY WITH CHILD/CHILDREN at both events.
