Movies in the Meadow Debuts on July 19th

Movies in the Meadow makes its debut on July 19th featuring Ferris Bueller’s Day off at Bay Meadows Park in San Mateo. This is no ordinary movie under the stars. Guests will enjoy a night market filled with local artisans, live music, games and prizes, the Bay Area’s best food trucks, plus Karaoke for a Cause! Pack a blanket and join us for some fun in the park.

Show the Parks Some Love
Grab your headbands, gather your friends and get those vocals in shape! Channel your inner 80’s rock star. Wear those sunglasses at night and get ready to rock. Horchato or Macapuno ice cream, anyone? Anyone? Anyone? We’re inviting guests to bust out an 80’s tune to benefit the parks. Bay Meadows will treat you to a FREE ice cream from Treatbot’s New Karaoke Truck and will donate to the parks for each song you sing.

Leading up to the event use #SingForTheParks thru July 19 to share your favorite 80’s song on Twitter and Bay Meadows will donate $1 to the parks, plus your tune may make our list of songs on July 19!
