Before the feature movie got underway July 30, park supervisor Alyssa Baguss spoke from the dock at Silverwood Park to a sea of people in canoes, floaties and inner tubes. “It’s been a long time since we’ve done things like this! It’s our first float-in at the park. We’re trying to create pandemic friendly programming. Earlier this year I noticed people were paddling, hammocking and picnicking. We thought ‘how can we do this so we can all still get together and watch a movie’…It’s summertime, in five months this is all going to be ice and we’re going to be remembering this night.”
In addition to the movie there was also a food truck in the parking lot for event-goers.
Michelle Milan came out for the movie with daughter Riya and her friend Laura Milanovich. Like many of the people heading to the lake, they were all smiles, excited for the experience. “We’re here to see the Goonies! It’s a fun way to get out and distance in boats!” said Milan.
The 1985 classic “The Goonies” played again Aug. 7.
