Washington County to host free outdoor music, movies, and more

Summer isn't quite over yet, and neither is the entertainment that comes along with it. Western Washington County residents can still take advantage of a wide range of free activities and events before the season draws to a close.

For the last few weeks, Harleman Park at 795 S. Heather St. in Cornelius has been staging free concerts, with bands like Fadedblue and Johnny Limbo & The Lugnuts delivering potent sound to eventgoers.

Although the concerts are over for the summer, the city of Cornelius will also be putting on Flicks in the Park, a free affair open to the public where movies are showcased on a big screen. At 8 p.m. on Fridays between Aug. 5 and Aug. 26, "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb," "The Good Dinosaur," "Max: Best Friend. Hero. Marine" and "Minions" will be screened. The Friends of the Cornelius Library will sell water, soda and other snack foods during the four flicks — and everyone is encouraged to bring a lawn chair, blanket and snacks.
