End-of-Summer Movie and the National Parks and Recreation Month Movie Madness Tournament
The End-of-Summer movie is a great way to bid farewell to summer and get ready for the beginning of the school year. The movie is chosen by members of the public through voting on Facebook during the National Parks and Recreation Month Movie Madness Tournament, which takes place during the four (4) weeks of July 2018. Parks and Recreation employees will choose 16 movies from a variety of genres, although all of them will be kid-friendly and not have a rating higher than PG, and the movies will go into a bracket published at the end of June 2018. Voting will be held from July 2 - 27, with the polls open Monday - Friday and winners announced on the Sunday night prior to a new round of voting beginning. The winning movie will be announced on Monday, July 30. More information about the 2018 End-of-Summer Movie and the National Parks and Recreation Movie Madness Tournament will be published in June 2018.
