Movie night out

After gusty winds forced the postponement of a free, outdoor showing of the film “Goosebumps” last month, organizers are going to try again.

The movie will be shown at dusk at Lincoln Park. It’s a free event, and attendees can bring blankets and chairs, as well as a picnic.

Vendors will be selling snacks if people are empty-handed and hungry.
