Snohomish County is changing their long standing Willis Tucker Park free family event schedule this year from evening movies to a mixture of movies and music.
The family favorite Movies in the Park Program is expanding their venues from the exclusive Willis Tucker Park setting to include Darington’s Old School Park and Lake Stevens Park.
They will be offering six different movies distributed among the three venues, of which two movies will be shown at Willis Tucker Park.
The Snohomish County Arts Commission is taking up the slack at Willis Tucker Park by providing free music each Tuesday evening in July.
