Update: The Smurfs will now be shown on August 23.
Tonight’s showing of the The Smurfs has been cancelled due to rain.
I’ll keep you posted if and when a makeup date is announced. Next week’s Thursday night show is The Wizard of Oz.
The South Milwaukee Downtown Market music performance — of Of the North — has also been cancelled for tonight, although the market itself is a rain-or-shine event.
I got this earlier today from Alderperson Lisa Pieper …
Due to the impending weather forecast for Thursday evening, the Outdoor Groovy Movie Nite showing maybe in question. Please check back with southmilwaukee.org and southmilwaukeeblog.com for details after 5:30 on Thursday for the latest information.
I’ll keep you posted.
Here is the ugly forecast.
Heritage Days may be over, but the special events are just beginning in South Milwaukee this summer.
That includes the return of South Milwaukee Groovy Movie Nites following the South Milwaukee Downtown Market the next three Thursdays. Here is the lineup:
- August 2: Tangled
- August 9: The Smurfs
- August 16: The Wizard of Oz
These movies, which start at dusk, were a huge hit last summer, and we’re hoping for even bigger and better things in 2012. Learn more in this press release, and bring your family, friends, neighbors and lawn chairs!
Another big August event is Community Night Out, and it returns on Wednesday, August 15, from 5:30 to 9 p.m. at the South Milwaukee Police Department and behind City Hall. Learn more in this flyer.
And don’t forget about a unique running and walking event this Saturday. With obstacles like hay bales, barricades and a slip-and-slide, the South Milwaukee Lions Club Roaring Challenge is not your everyday 5K. Learn more about the event — which starts at South Milwaukee High School — in this press release.
