Family Flicks Event Returns to Downtown Chandler
Chandler, Ariz. – On Thursday, Dec. 21, gather the family, a cozy blanket and your holiday spirit, Downtown Chandler will host a not to be missed event; Family Flicks. This free-to-attend event will feature a screening of Elf, an opportunity to visit Santa with complimentary photography, free hot cocoa, popcorn for purchase, the beautiful voices of our old-fashioned Christmas carolers and a perfect picture spot in our giant sleigh in the newly renovated parklet on the corner of Commonwealth Avenue and San Marcos Place.
Immediately preceding the event is the Chandler Farmers Market in the same location, Dr. A.J. Chandler Park west, from 3-7 p.m. The market will host additional craft vendors to make it easy to purchase last minute holiday gifts along with 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 free screening of Elf.
“We may not get any snow in Chandler, but we certainly aren’t lacking holiday spirit, this is a great way to enjoy a quick escape from the pressure of this busy season.” says Beth Fioreza, Executive Director 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, The City of Chandler, Marx Pro Productions and Murphy’s Law Irish Pub. More information on the event can be found on downtownchandler.org.
