Free flicks

June 17, 2013 —


Grab your blankets, lawn chairs and Milk Duds and mark down these dates. Free Flicks is back this year with a great line up! Every movie is free to the public and are shown throughout the Des Moines area parks and facilities.

The films begin after sunset (around 9:00 p.m.), and movie-goers are free to bring their own food and drinks as concessions will not be provided for purchase.
