Dog days of summer hit in Castle Pines

Families arrived early with blankets and chairs, ready for an evening of  fun for the Master Association’s Movie in the Park event. The movie started just as the last rays of sun disappeared.

There was a great turnout in August for the movie in the park event hosted by the Castle Pines North Master Association. More than two hundred people gathered at Coyote Ridge Park on the perfect summer evening, arriving before sunset with blankets, chairs, and picnic dinners.

Friends caught up with friends, neighbors with neighbors, while kids ran and played together on the warm night. Just before dusk, board members from the Master Association welcomed the jovial crowd and distributed candy, water bottles, and backpacks to the children gathered for the movie.

As the sun set, “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days of Summer” began. People both young and old laughed throughout the evening as the movie played, and little whispers permeated through the breeze, saying, “I love this part …” for the rest of the night. It was a great gathering and a fun movie. Everybody had a great time.
