In April I told you how a nearly decade old tradition was in jeopardy in Atascadero.
The city said it needed help to cover the costs of putting on "Movies in the Gardens" at the Sunken Gardens Park during August, or it would be forced to cancel the summer activity.
Well apparently the city's Waste Management company stepped up because they are billed as the presenting sponsors and the movies will happen next month.
It's a summer tradition kids will remember their whole lives. The movies happen every Saturday in August at Sunken Garden Park and they are always films good for the whole family to see.
The best part is the event is free.
Saturday August 3rd, watch the movie "Open Season". Boog, a domesticated 900 lb. grizzly bear finds himself stranded in the woods three days before Open Season. Forced to rely on Elliot, a fast-talking mule deer, the two form an unlikely friendship and must quickly rally other forest animals if they are to form a rag-tag army against the hunters.
If you come, it's a good idea to bring blankets and low-back chairs. For more information, click here, and click on the upcoming events tab, or call (805) 470-3360.
