I have fond memories going to the drive in as a child. We put on our footie pajamas and piled into our station wagon with blankets and sleeping bags. Sitting in the back seat with snacks and drinks in hand, we watched the movie on the big screen listening to the sound track with the crackly speaker perched precariously on the wing mirror of the car. There was a car hop that sold popcorn, candy and soda throughout the show. Ahh the good ‘ole days.
Now you can relive that same experience at the San Juan County Fair Grounds on Fridays through fall. And the admission prices are retro too – $5 per person or pile your family into a car for $20!
Here is the summer and fall schedule:
June 6 – Karate Kid
June 20th- Willy Wanka and the Chocolate Factory
July 5- Back to the Future
October 3 – An American Tail
October 17 – Hook
October 31 Beetle Juice
If you forgot your blanket, the concession sells these cozy fleece hoodies in pullover or zip styles, designed by Jennifer Rigg from Loea Design. Proceeds support the fairgrounds.
