Hunterdon County offers outdoor music and movies

The Hunterdon County Parks & Recreation Division will offer free summer drive-in concerts and free fall drive-in movies at South County Park, starting July 30.
All in attendance should bring a mask and follow social distancing rules.
The concerts will be held on Thursdays, July 30, Aug. 6, and Aug. 13, from 7 to 9 p.m. Concerts will be drive-in style with music being transmitted to car radios.
Performing on July 30 is Jake’s Rockin Country Band; Aug. 6, Asbury Fever (Bruce Springsteen tribute band); and Aug. 13, Hunterdon Symphony. The Hunterdon Symphony is also being sponsored by funds from the Hunterdon County Cultural & Heritage Commission, a partner of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
In addition to the drive-in concerts, the Parks Division invites resident to return to their childhood and revisit the drive-in movie. The Parks Division will show two movies in the fall. On Saturday, Sept. 26, “Playing With Fire” (2019) will be shown and on Oct. 10, “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” (1968) will be screened.
“Some may remember the old drive-in theater days at the South County Park,” said Dan Bush, parks and recreation division head.
“Returning to a simpler time while enjoying wholesome music and movies, bringing family and friends together in a safe environment, is a welcome summer activity Hunterdon County residents can look forward to.”
None of these events will feature food vendors. Mask-wearing and social distancing are required when outside of cars. Parking for all events will be limited and first-come, first-served. There is no pre-registration.
