A family tradition will once again return to District 5 in August as Councilwoman Cheri Bryant Hamilton (D-5) announces the 2010 Outdoor Family Film Festival begins again in August: the popular summertime event will show free movies on Fridays and Saturday nights.

“I am pleased to bring back a family event which has been very successful in bringing families together in the summer with free entertainment,” says Hamilton. “The Outdoor Family Film Festival will again return to Shawnee Park and Portland Park this year.”

The Outdoor Family Film Festival will begin Its fourth season on Friday Night August 6th in Shawnee Park with the Academy Award winning film “The Blind Side” starring Sandra Bullock, Kathy Bates and Tim McGraw,

“These movies are free and a good chance for families to go out together and have some fun,” says Hamilton. “But another important aspect is getting out and enjoying Shawnee and Portland Parks. Two parks which are two very important areas in the neighborhoods in our community.

On Friday nights in August, the films will be shown in Shawnee Park at Southwestern Parkway and West Market Street at the Softball fields. On Saturday nights in August, the movies will be shown at the Portland Park, 640 North 27th Street behind the Portland Community Center.
