7/25: Mr. Peabody and Sherman

So this year, bring your picnic baskets, family, friends, blankets, and chairs and we'll provide the popcorn (limited)! Due to the summer entertainment season on our Nautical Mile, please consider riding your bike or taking a walk down to the park instead of driving. Showtime begins at 8:30 PM

This Free event courtesy of the Bethpage Federal Credit Union Community Development Division is a great addition to summer in our VIllage..

Hope to see you there!!
