You may have already had your fill of inflatables for the summer--with all those plastic kiddie pools, blow-up pool toys, moon bounces and patriotic-themed balloons. Not to mention the light-headed, stinging-cheek sensation that comes from blowing up everything with your personal air supply.
So it's understandable that a giant, inflatable movie screen might elicit horror and cries for mercy from some, but not to fear. Not only is this inflatable screen already inflated, all you have to do to enjoy it is haul out the lawn chairs, pack some snackies and show up to Meridian Settlers Park with a gaggle of your family and friends.
Every Friday night this summer, Meridian Parks and Rec is hosting Cable One Movie Night, a free, family friendly movie event. This Friday, Ultimate Jiu-Jitsu of Meridian is appropriately sponsoring a screening of The Karate Kid (2010). All movies start at dusk and are free to anyone looking to revisit some of those PG faves and have some fun in the park after dark.[ Video is no longer available. ]
