We are summer babies! We love the warm breezes, fresh-cut grass and salty air. The more, the better. As long as the days are, they are never quite enough—we always want to squeeze more out of each day. One of the great perks of summertime, is being able to spend time outdoors in the evening and enjoy the grand ol’ tradition of watching a summer blockbuster with the family or close friends! Here are a few places to roll out a blanket and enjoy the show, under the stars. If it’s been a while, give try this.
Harbor Point, Stamford
Roll out your blanket (no tables) on the soft grass of Commons Park. The show begins as soon as the sun sets, usually around 8 p.m. Bring the kids and even your pup—and while your Fido is the best dog in the entire world, please make sure to use the leash. There’s no fee for the event. If it rains, sorry, head on home and see what’s on Netflix. You’re in time to catch the last of the season.

August 11 – Indiana Jones and The Raiders of The Lost Ark
