There's nothing better in the summer months than attending an outdoor movie. This event is still a ways out but you're going to want to add it to your summer bucket list. The City of Big Lake is hosting another free Movie In The Park event on Friday, September 10 at Big Lake Lakeside Park.

They're showing the 2001 animated DreamWorks comedy 'Shrek'. It's about an antisocial ogre named Shrek who ends up having to defend his home from Lord Farquaad. He goes on a mission to save Princess Fiona who the king's betrothed. Shrek ends up finding love in a hopeless place.

The movie will start around 7:45 p.m. but the parking lot will officially open at 7:45 p.m. The park is open all day to the public and includes picnic table areas, grilling stations, a playground, a sandy beach and swimming options. Parking in the lot before the movie is $5.

You don't have to sign up in advance or anything. You just need to show up and get ready to watch a free movie under the stars. What a cool activity for the family!

There are some rules you should know before you go. Bigger vehicles like vans and SUVs will be directed to park in the back of the lot to be considerate to those with smaller cars for viewing. You won't be able to sit on top of your vehicle, but you can sit in the back of your truck bed or hatchback.

All headlights will need to be turned off before the movie starts. You can hear the movie through your own FM radio in your vehicle.

You can also bring in your own food to the event but concessions will be available for purchase from a local food truck that'll be on-hand. You can buy burgers, sandwiches, fries, mini donuts and more.

Big Lake Lakeside Park is located at 101 Lakeshore Drive in Big Lake.
