Treedome and WINONArts are announcing the return of the outdoor, socially distanced eight-part series of events Lake Park Drive-In: Music and Movies set to take place all summer long with outdoor live music concerts and feature film screenings at the Lake Park Bandshell. With a combination of vehicle spots and socially distanced outdoor seating, Lake Park Drive-In is bringing outdoor, accessible, family events back to Winona.
“This event was a big success with only four showings last year. We are excited to bring back this program with an expanded lineup of musicians and movies that will last all summer long,” said Maggie Panetta, production director of Treedome.
The following is the schedule of events:
• 5/29 - “West Side Story” with Annie Mack
• 6/12 - “Jurassic Park” with Sleeping Jesus and Sheep for Wheat
• 6/25 - “Spider Man: Into the Spider-Verse” with Wurk
• 7/17 - “Rear Window” with Chris Koza
• 7/24 - “The Goonies” with Mae Simpson and Wheel of Fortune
• 8/7 - “Raya and the Last Dragon” with Keston Wright and Fires of Denmark
• 8/28 - “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” with The Shackletons and Hyooman
• 9/11 - “Shrek” with Kiss the Tiger and Sawyers Dream
Seating is split into two categories: vehicle drive-in and benches for groups of one-to-six. All spots are limited and reservations are required. Masks are still required for all non-vehicle seating, and personal hand sanitizer or hand wipes are recommended.
Reservations can be made at http://lakeparkdrivein.eventbrite.com or call 507-398-5424 with a name and preferred seating option.
Spots are free, but donations are accepted online to keep the program going into the future. $10 suggested per person or $20 per vehicle.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to legislative appropriation from the Legacy Amendment Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. Additional support provided by SEMAC, Merchants Bank, and Winona Parks and Recreation (city of Winona).
