El Paso County will show the first of two movies at Ascarate Park this Friday evening.

The outdoor event called "Movies by the Lake" features first run films shown on an inflatable screen set up near the waterfront across from the pavilion. The two-movie series will open this Friday, May 15, with a free showing of “Pitch Perfect”. The following Friday, May 22, Disney’s “Big Hero 6” will be screened.

Not only can you enjoy a movie under the stars, you can dine alfresco as well. Grab a bite from one or all of the food trucks that will be on site serving up their specialties -- among them Sweet Addiction Cupcakes, Grill on the Go, The Barking Hot Dog, El Jefe Taqueria, and Kona Ice. You’re more than welcome to bring your own snacks, though. But no alcohol. Blankets and lawn chairs, however, are permitted.

Although the movie is free, there will be a $5 per car park entry fee. You can find a few more details HERE
