Coloring contest again joins park movie series

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.
