Who ya gonna call when you have no weekend plans? Your mom, your sister, your partner? Well dial them up and let them know that Friday night plans are set because the Family Flicks Art Walk is this Friday, Feb. 17. Grab a blanket, find your spot on the grassy lawn of Dr. A.J. Chandler Park, and enjoy the original Ghostbusters movie. Oh, did we mention this event is free-to-attend? 

Here's a run down on the activities that will be happening for the night. 

·  Arizona Ghostbusters group (yes, they'll be bringing a Marshmallow Man and a Ghostbusters vehicle) will be doing a costume contest. Dress as a ghost or dress as a Ghostbuster. Let's see which side wins... Costume contest is at 6:30 p.m.

·  East Valley Engineering for Kids will be providing a green slime activity for the kids (or kids at heart) from 6-7 p.m. Because, what's a Ghostbusters event without some green slime? 

·  Chandler Christian Community Center will be accepting new socks and underwear for their program iHelp, which helps those experiencing homelessness. You can win a $50 gift card to a Downtown Chandler business if you bring items to donate. 

·  Murphy's Law Irish Pub will be giving free green apple cider as supplies last. 

·  For the first time, this event will be tied with the Chandler Art Walk, so you can also shop local artisans. 

·  Oh yeah, and we'll have a foam machine. *drops mic*

You don't even need to hide your Twizzlers in your purse because you're allowed to bring your own snacks and beverages (non-alcoholic beverages only please). There will also be popcorn for purchase.

This event kicks off a weekend of science in Downtown Chandler. The following day, on Saturday, Feb. 18 is the City of Chandler's Science Spectacular event.

The event runs 6-9:30 p.m., movie starts at 6:30 p.m. Address for the event is:
