Every December, the ever-giving Excelsior Fire District finds one more way to engage with the community at its annual free kids’ movie event. At the town’s quaint Dock Cinema, kids (and their parents) can enjoy a free movie, usually a relatively new release, complete with snacks and other fun activities. This year, attendees will meet-and-greet with the big guy himself (Santa), and Sparky the Fire Dog. Perhaps most family-friendly of all, the movie starts first thing in the morning, so you can get your pint-sized cinephiles home for lunch and naptime, no problem.
December 7. Doors open 8:45 a.m.; movie at 9:30 a.m. The movie title will be announced closer to the event date; check online for updates.
