Kids Summer Fun Guide

Kids Flicks

SPLASH PARTY MOVIE NIGHTS Load up the swimsuits and floaties, but leave the SPF at home. Austin PARD's ever-popular program at Deep Eddy Pool lets the whole family get pruney fingers while they watch a kids' movie from the comfort of their inner tubes under the evening stars. If the weather's bad, stay home; and if the clouds let loose mid-movie, rain checks will be given for free admittance to future movie nights. Refreshments are available for a small fee, and there is a nominal admittance charge. Saturdays, beginning at dusk. 401 Deep Eddy Dr. 472-8546.
