Motion pictures, a foot race and a police-sponsored nighttime community rally are among the events planned this summer by the Lincoln City Parks & Recreation Department.
Parks & Rec Supervisor Boone Marker shared information on this summer’s special events, including Movies in the Park, Ocean’s Edge 5K & 10K and National Night Out.
Movies in the Park is sponsored by Coldwell Banker and features the movies How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, Incredibles 2 and Mary Poppins Returns. The movies will be shown on a large inflatable screen at dusk on June 15, July 13 and Aug. 10, respectively. Viewers are encouraged to bring blankets and enjoy popcorn provided by Bijou Theatre.
The annual Ocean’s Edge 5K and 10K run/walk event will be held at 9:30 a.m., Saturday, July 6, at low tide and is family and pet-friendly, Marker said. The race starts and ends on the sand behind Kyllo’s Seafood & Grill and glass floats will be awarded to the first overall male and female participants. Interested runners/walkers can sign up online at runsignup.com.
National Night Out will take place from 5:30-7:30 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 6, and brings the Lincoln City community and Lincoln City Police Department together for a night of free food, live music, raffle prizes, a dunk tank, bounce houses and more at Kirtsis Park.
