Head to an Oakville park this summer and there’s a chance you might see dragons or even The Incredibles.

Well, at least on the big screen.

The Town of Oakville’s Movies in the Park series returns to parks across the community over the next couple of months and residents can grab a picnic blanket, snacks and refreshments and enjoy a variety of free popular movies with both Raya and the Last Dragon and The Incredibles on this year’s viewing list.

Film nights kick off July 19 with a free outdoor movie and family-free activities every Wednesday at a different Oakville park every until the end of August.

The fun night of activities begin at 6:30 p.m. with the film set to roll around 8 p.m., closer to sunset. Families are encouraged to come early to ensure you get a good spot to watch the main feature movie and have a chance to connect with friends and neighbours.
