Chandler, Ariz. – On Thursday, Dec. 22, gather the family, a blanket and your holiday spirit because Downtown Chandler has a new event you do not want to miss; Family Flicks. This free-to-attend event will feature a screening of Elf, snow, a Santa visit with complimentary photography, free hot cocoa, popcorn for purchase and the chance to interact with some of Santa’s elves.
Immediately preceding the event is the Chandler Farmers Market in the same location, Dr. A.J. Chandler Park west, running 3-7 p.m. This particular market will host additional craft vendors to purchase last minute holiday gifts and the usual weekly local vendors to stock your pantry. Guests are encouraged to make a night of it and visit the farmers market first, snap a complimentary photo with Santa and then settle in for the movie in the park.
“We’re excited to bring this new event to Downtown Chandler. We’re hoping this free-to-attend event will help the community to get in the holiday spirit and help the classic conundrum of finding something fun and inexpensive to do when the kids are off of school and family is visiting. Plus, who can resist an event with snow in Central Arizona?” says Deanne Fenton, event coordinator at Downtown Chandler Community Partnership, the group hosting the event.
Guests are asked to bundle up and bring their own blankets and chairs to make sure they’ll be comfortable in the winter weather on the park grass. Holiday sweaters and merry attitudes encouraged. Family Flicks event starts at 6 p.m., movie begins at 6:30 p.m. Sponsors for the event include Marx Productions Inc and Murphy’s Law Irish Pub.
