Wrangler News will hold its annual Kids Coloring Contest in conjunction with the city of Tempe’s 31st annual “Movies at the Park’’ series.

Each Friday through May 21, a free movie will be shown at Kiwanis Park on All-American Way in Tempe.

At each movie, children under age 12 will have the opportunity to participate in a coloring contest, with weekly prizes awarded from various Kyrene Corridor businesses. Each week’s contest picture, which will be drawn from a character or scene in that week’s movie, will be available at the movie.

 The picture will also be published in Wrangler News.

Awards will be given in two age groups – 6 and under and 7-12.

Entries for any of the weekly contests can be turned in through May 31.

The movie series begins on April 2 with the movie “Coraline’’. Future movies are: April 9, “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs’’; April 16, “Chuck Jones Animation: An Evening of Laughter; April 23, “Up’’; April 30, “Monsters vs. Aliens,’’; May 7, “G-Force’’; May 14, “Where the Wild Things Are; May 21, “A Bug’s Life.’’

All movies are free. The movies, which will be shown on the largest inflatable screen in Arizona, will start at dusk, approximately 7 p.m. on the west side of Kiwanis Lake near the fire pit.

Kyrene Corridor Rotary Club will again operate a concession stand during the movies.
