Movies under the stars!

The first family movie of the season, under the stars in the park at Mount Trashmore in Virginia Beach. Special free pre-movie family activities and movie snacks for sale. Movie starts at dusk. Free admission & on-site parking.
Bring a lawn chair or blanket, relax, and enjoy this animated film about Barry B. Benson (voice by Jerry Seinfeld) as a graduate bee fresh out of college who is disillusioned at his lone career choice: making honey. On a rare trip outside the bee hive, Barry’s life is saved by Vanessa (voice by Renee Zellweger), a florist in New York City. As their relationship blossoms, he discovers humans are mass consumers of honey and subsequently decides to file a class action lawsuit against the entire human race for stealing bees’ honey.

Family Vacay to a National Park?

The National Park Service will allow visitors free entry during three weekends this summer to encourage Americans to visit national parks such as the Grand Canyon, Yosemite and Rocky Mountain National Park. The fee waivers -- one each month in June, July and August -- will apply to all 391 national parks across the country, from Alaska to Florida.  Interior Secretary Ken Salazar says the free weekends should help American families struggling with the recession afford a memorable vacation.   All 147 Park Service sites that charge fees for entry will waive entrance fees from June 20-21, July 18-19 and August 15-16.  Entry fees being waived range from $3 to $25.
