MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (Aug. 5, 2016) – The Town of Mount Pleasant continues its Music & Movies in the Park series presented by Y102.5 by taking you back to the 80s and 90s with music by local throwback band Weird Science and the hilarious adventure comedy Space Jam at Memorial Waterfront Park on Friday, Aug. 12.
Bring your blankets and chairs, enjoy a sunset picnic in the park, then sit back and enjoy an evening of free entertainment with the Ravenel Bridge and Charleston Harbor as a backdrop.
The Chopped & Topped food truck will serve up dinner starting at 6:30 when the music begins. Plus, T&T Kettle Korn, BKeD pretzels, Charleston Festival Foods, Holy City Homemade Italian Ice and Hometown Catering will have plenty of snacks and frozen treats available.
College of Charleston’s Clyde the Cougar and The Citadel’s Spike the Bulldog will be entertaining the crowd during the music and tossing balls in inflatable basketball games (if you’ve seen Clyde dance before, you know he’s got quite a few moves!)
“This is going to be one of our best throwback weeks ever,” said Special Events Manager Nicole Harvey. “In addition to enjoying great music and a classic movie, we’re counting on our guests to cheer on Clyde and Spike enough to talk them into a good old fashioned hoops challenge.”
Y102.5’s Brian Cleary will be onsite and InTown.com will offer a free activity with plenty of giveaways.
Space Jam will keep all ages laughing as Michael Jordan helps the Looney Tunes in an epic basketball game that will determine the fate of Bugs Bunny & Co. The family-friendly feature is rated PG.
Sunset is at 8:08 and the movie will begin at approximately 8:30. Admission, parking and activities are free. All ages are welcome.
