All over Tustin: Movies in the Park
Your kids perhaps never have had the opportunity to visit a drive-in theater — but at least they can enjoy the thrill of an outdoor film in one of Tustin’s parks. Activities start at 5:30 p.m. on Thursdays. Movies get going at dusk, around 8 p.m. Bring chairs, blankets and snacks – or grab a bite from a food vendor. The annual event debuts July 20 with “Moana” at Centennial Park, 14722 Devonshire Ave. Information: tustinca.org.
