Things to Do with Your Dogs: Outdoor Movies in the Park

Despite the impression many people might have of Chicago, we are a city of plentiful parks, green space, and an active Park District.
Besides having vibrant parks in each neighborhood, they've also started a summer movie series in each of the local parks where you can pack up a blanket and picnic dinner and enjoy an alfresco movie screening.
The added bonus for us is that these are dog-friendly family events. We even met up with our friend prettyZoe from Two Kitties, one Pittie.
We enjoyed tacos from nearby Big Star, with the pooches laying around on big blankets. We have found the secret to appeasing Miss M is to bring our comforter blanket which makes her feel like she has the privilege of laying on a bed.
They showed the movie Hugo, which was extra fun to watch outside. The only confusing part was when the dog in the film was barking.
We also had the chance to meet a friend who knew the pooches. Thanks for saying hi! We'd love to meet your pup too!

Thanks so much for including us in the post (and inviting us out!). It was such a fun night. :)

Oh how fun! We don't have those sort of things happening in Arizona.

I love movies in the park! They do that here in the fall (too hot in the summer!)

How fun! I would love to try to take our dogs to a movie in the park sometime! :)

Some of our local parks do movies in the park or concerts in the park that are free to attend and that happen regularly over the summer. But, no dogs are allowed at any of them.

That sounds like so much fun! I wish we had more things like this in Portland. I'm impressed that Ms. M, Mr. B, and Zoe were able to sit patiently through the movie with all of those distractions! Maybe someday Athena will get to be that good!
