Cedar Falls To Say Goodbye To A Beloved Summer Tradition
Families in the Cedar Valley will have one final summer to enjoy an annual warm weather tradition.
Finding affordable and fun activities to take the entire family to during the summer can be a difficult task.
For the past twenty years, Community Main Street has put on a summer outdoor movie series where families can get together and enjoy a FREE night underneath the moon with "Movies Under the Moon."
It has been hosted during the summer in Overman Park in Cedar Falls. However, the summer of 2023 will be the last time locals will be able to enjoy this free series of events.
According to reports, attendance for the event has actually gone down over the past few years since there has been a boom of other family-friendly activities and events taking place on Fridays during the summer.
In addition, the cost to put an event like this on has gone up over the years.
Cedar Falls Community Main Street officials cannot confirm the exact reason for the end of this event, they did say that "Movies Under the Moon" had "outlived its lifespan."
Here is the full list of movies that will be shown during the summer:
Friday June 2nd, 2023: Lyle, Lyle Crocodile
Friday June 16th, 2023: The Princess Bride
Friday July 28th, 2023: The Secret Life of Pets
Friday August 11th, 2023: Spiderman: No Way Home
Friday August 18th, 2023: The Sandlot
