An outdoor concert and movie series is coming to a trio of Delta parks this month.
Beginning July 8, the City of Delta, Tourism Delta and the Delta Chamber of Commerce are presenting “Friday Night Flix” at parks in Ladner, Tsawwassen and North Delta.
In addition to live music and movie screenings, the events will feature organized on-site food truck dining, family games and more, and residents are encouraged to make a full night of it by packing a picnic or ordering take-out from a local restaurant to enjoy in the park.
“Friday Night Flix is focused on bringing our community together by providing an opportunity to gather with friends and connect with new ones in a park close to home,” Tourism Delta executive director Jane Stark said in a press release. “Alternatively, it also encourages visitors and residents to explore Delta with different vendors and movie features in each community.”
The first Friday Night Flix will take place on July 8 at Memorial Park in Ladner (5010 47th Ave.), with a performance by retro-chic vintage vocal trio Beauty Shop Dolls at 6:45 p.m. followed by an 8:30 p.m. screening of the 1993 coming-of-age sports comedy classic The Sandlot.
The following week, Latin music act Bossa Dias will play a concert at Winskill Park in Tsawwassen (5585 9th Ave.), also at 6:45 p.m., followed by an 8:30 p.m. screening of 2019’s Jumanji: The Next Level, starring Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan and Jack Black.
Finally, on July 22, Indo-folk musician Ranj Singh (“where Eastern rhythms and melodies meet Western folk music,” according his Facebook page) will perform at North Delta Community Park (11311 84th Ave.), followed by an 8:30 p.m. screening of 2021’s Jungle Cruise, starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt.
