Movies Return to Santee Lakes

It’s time again for Santee Lakes’ Movies by the Lake on Friday nights. Every other week, beginning this Friday, June 24, the folks at Padre Dam’s Santee Lakes will set up a giant screen beside Lake 5 for families to enjoy a recent animated film. The movies are free, although there is an $8 fee per automobile. This year the West Hills Marching Band and Color Guard will host a concession stand at the lake for your dining pleasure. They will be selling hamburgers, hot dogs, popcorn, and more and all proceeds will go to help support their activities for the 2011-2012 school year. The gates open at 4:00 and the concession stand opens at 6:00. There will be games and activities starting at 7:00 and the movie begins at 8:00. Get the family together, bring your chairs, blankets, and jackets, and have a great time.
