NOTE: BACKYARD MOVIE FEST HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED TO SEPTEMBER 9TH
A night under the stars, a family friendly movie, awesome food, and a playground, what better way to mark the end of the summer? Join Lerner Remington on September 2nd at Hadley’s Park for movie night!
The event begins at 5pm with family friendly activities, including a moon bounce for the children and food truck vendors for the adults. The movie starts at sundown! This year, we will be showing Walt Disney’s Moana.
Moana: A Movie To Remember
This animated musical fantasy is Walt Disney Picture’s 56th animated feature film. Ron Clements and John Musker are the directors of this amazing adventure, with Auli’i Cravalho playing the leading character of Moana. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson plays the big role of demigod Maui, who is the shape-shifting demigod of the wind and sea. He even sings the hilarious song “You’re Welcome” that you can’t miss. The movie takes place on the beautiful Polynesian island of Motunui.
The premise of the movie is that the demigod Maui loses the mystical heart of Te Fiti. Moana, who is chosen to receive the heart a millennium later, goes on an epic adventure with the arrogant demigod to reclaim the heart and bring peace to her island and all surrounding islands.
The film has won two Academy Awards, including best-animated feature and best original song. It also grossed over $642 million dollars all over the world, so it is certainly worth the watch!
Food Trucks Galore
With all of the food trucks that will be present at this event, there is sure to be something for everyone to enjoy!
If you are a seafood connoisseur, give El Fuego a try! Developed by two Peruvian chefs and a Caribbean chef, they combined their background with classic American flavors. Their unique combination gives a tasty flare to their food that everyone loves!

Hadley’s Park: A Park for All Kids to Enjoy
Hadley’s Park was designed with all children in mind. Spanning over 4,000 square feet, this playground provides a place for disabled children and their able-bodied friends and siblings to have fun together.
The playground revolves around a “Main Street USA” theme, and is a friendly and safe environment that your kids will love. There are multiple different play areas, including transportation areas, roadways, pirate ships, frontier villages, castle bridges, and upper body areas. The park is so unique that families have traveled from as far as New Jersey and West Virginia to see what it’s all about! Lerner Remington residents have the luxury of accessing this park all year long, as it is located across the street from our community.
Mark your calendars: don’t miss Backyard Movie Fest at Hadley’s Park, as it is sure to be a great time for all involved! The best part? Admission is free! If you’re new to the area, this will be a great event for you and your kids to meet your neighbors.
