Get ready for another summer of superb free entertainment as the City of Greeley presents its annual Neighborhood Nights movie and events before the films.
Since Neighborhood Night’s creation in 1996, one of Greeley’s most fun (and free!) summertime rituals is for folks to head to beautiful parks throughout the community, stake out a patch of grass with their lawn chairs or blankets and enjoy a wonderful movie shot on an inflatable screen. These alfresco theaters bring back memories of drive-ins that baby boomers grew up with gathering people from all walks of life. So why spend another Friday night in front of the TV when you can be outside enjoying a balmy Colorado evening with friends and family watching a favorite flick under the stars?
