One of the most popular events in the Lake Area is return to Prien Lake Park on April, 7. Of course, I'm talking about "Movies Under the Stars." What started out small just a few years ago has really become a great event that everyone can enjoy. If you've never been to any of the "Movies Under the Stars", you and your family will become regulars right away. Since admission is free, it will also fit any family's budget.

This year's "Movies Under the Stars" (MUTS) will start off with a 2016 hit movie from Disney called Moana." The basic premise of the story is that a Polynesian princess is on a quest to save her village from a terrible curse.

All MUTS are free and they have a great line-up of family entertainment for the following weeks as well:

April 14 - "Sing"

April 21 - "Finding Dory"

April 28 - "The Secret Life of Pets"

You can take a blanket or lawn chairs and picnic basket along and have dinner while you watch the movie, or you can get food there from Gatti's Pizza and Tikiz Gulf Coast.

You might also want to take along some mosquito spray as well. Voice of experience. Just call me "scratchy." One last note: You might want to keep up with the weather forecast. In case of inclement weather, the events may be cancelled.
