Big Screen on the Blackwater returns after tremendous kickoff with Santa

Published on December 11, 2013 with No Comments

Last Friday Milton rang in the Christmas season along the Blackwater River in Milton.

The City of Milton in conjunction with the area Tom Thumb Stores kicked off Big Screen on the Blackwater – a three week series of holiday movies in historic downtown Milton – last Friday by showing A Christmas Story.

During the kickoff of Big Screen on the Blackwater, Santa Claus paid a visit to the adults and children and received a warm welcome from roughly 400 children during his stay.

Just like Milton’s annual Bands on the Blackwater, you can come downtown with your lawn chair or blanket and watch a movie.

But if it is too cold outside, don’t worry. You can watch the movies from the comfort of your car.

“We are going to have a 25-foot inflatable screen alongside the Blackwater River,” said Linsey Williamson. “You can watch the movie from the comfort of your car and tune in with your radio to enjoy this free outdoor holiday –themed movie.”

The movies will start at 6 p.m. on South Willing St. in Milton.

This Friday’s movie is Arthur Christmas.

Do you want to know how Santa accomplishes the feat of making and delivering all of those toys? Then this movie is for you. In Arthur Christmas you will get to see the answer to that question as they reveal the never-before seen ultra-high-tech operation hidden beneath the North Pole.

Concessions will be made available through the Pace High School Band and personal coolers will be permitted as well.

The City of Milton Parks Department is asking as a courtesy to other movie goers, no smoking please.
