Join us for a FREE MOVIE!  On Friday, November 9th, VLPRA will show the animated hit "SING" at John W. Saunders Park (1151 River Street in Valdosta).  Bring a blanket or chairs and your whole family for the free event.  It starts at dusk (around 5:45/6:00 PM).  There will be concessions for sale (cash only please), and picnics are welcome.  We will show the film on our massive 20 foot inflatable screen (with subtitles for those who are hearing impaired).  It's a fun, free way to spend the evening with your loved ones enjoying South Georgia's beautiful fall weather.  No registration required, just show up.  All children must be accompanied by an adult.  We'll see you in the park!
