Movie Night in the ParkMovies in the Park and a Great Partnership with the Adams County Fair!

In June and July, our ongoing partnership with the Adams County Fair yielded two wonderful community movie nights for Hyland Hills’ residents and guests.
We have been partners since the Adams Fair team hosted their first ever movie night in 2016. That movie night, was held in the Water World parking lot and to date remains their highest-ever attended movie night with more than 600 people attending the event. It was the movie “Grease” that drew the big crowd, and praise from the Hyland Hills community for hosting such a great family event.

This past June, we brainstormed an idea to bring the next movie to the beautiful golf course space immediately adjacent to Adventure Golf & Raceway. We thought, why not make it an added bonus for guests who would be visiting Adventure Golf & Raceway anyway. So, we themed the event as a superhero costume event with “Spiderman Homecoming” as the movie. We hired both Spiderman and Wonder Woman characters to join in the event so that lucky movie-goers could be treated to some superhero “tips” from the hero’s themselves. To make the event extra special, Adams County Fair gave away tickets to upcoming Fair concerts, rodeo and demolition derby events and Hyland Hills gave away Adventure Golf & Raceway fun packs. Voila, the event was a success.
Then, in July, we added the City of Federal Heights as a movie night partner and used their annual community social as a backdrop for the movie “Happy Feet.” We chose the movie as a way to celebrate the newest attraction at Water World, Glacier Run, our penguin-themed ride. Throw in appearances by Hyland Hills mascots, the lovely Adams Fair Queen and her attendants, popcorn, water, prizes and a perfect summer evening was had by all those who attended.
We hope you will attend the Adams County Fair, which runs from August 1-5, and where Hyland Hills is the official sponsor of the 2018 Kids Zone. We are very appreciative of our partnership with the Adams County Fair and we look forward to continuing our work with them in these movie events and other projects in the future.
