Here’s the New Date for Free Showing of ‘Coco’ at Ascarate Park
Due to high winds that blew through the area, El Paso County Parks postponed the outdoor showing of the movie Coco which was scheduled for April 13 at Ascarate Park.
Wind gusts that exceeded the levels recommended for an inflatable screen prompted the parks department to scrub the event amid safety concerns.
But do not fear lovers of animated Disney flick. The free lake-side screening of everyone's favorite Day of the Dead animated movie has a new date: Friday, May 4.
The family friendly event will get underway at 6 p.m. with a handful of activities for the kids and several food trucks serving up their specialties, according to the Facebook event post. Families can then gather around the glow of "the largest inflatable screen in the city," which will be set up near the waterfront on the lawn across from the pavilion, and kick back under the stars for the special screening of Coco just after sundown, which this time of the year is approximately 8 p.m.
Blankets, lawn chairs, your own snacks, and leashed, well behaved pets are welcome. Alcohol, not so much. For more event information, visit the El Paso County Parks & Special Events Facebook.
