PELHAM – July is National Park and Recreation Month, and Pelham Parks and Recreation is celebrating the occasion by hosting a glow walk and movie night on July 9.

The event is set to take place at Fun Go Holler Park, next to Pelham Racquet Club, where guests will be treated to an afternoon of activities, food and entertainment beginning at 6 p.m.

According to Parks and Rec Assistant Director Alicia Walters, the event will feature “lights, cameras and actions,” through the different offerings at the event.

“The Glow Walk and Movie in the Park event is a great event for all ages. We will have food trucks, sports inflatables,  games, crafts, face paint and more. Come walk the “1-mile fun walk” and enjoy a movie under the stars!  T- shirt will be on sale while supplies last.,” Walters said. “July is National Recreation and Parks  Month! Pelham Parks and Recreation would like to invite all families and members of the community to enjoy a fun night at Fun Go Holler park.”

Gates for the event will open at 6 p.m. when guests will be able to browse the different food trucks that are set to attend the event.

Around 7:30 p.m. those participating in the glow walk will start lining up to go on the one-mile path through the park.

Parks and Rec will be handing out free glow necklaces, while supplies last, and are encouraging guests to bring their own glow-in-the-dark gear to help light up the path.

After the walk, a family-themed movie will be shown at 8:15 p.m.

“Food trucks will be available for family picnicking, get your glow on and then settle down for a family-themed movie in the park. Bring a blanket or a chair,” reads an event description on the department’s website.

The cost to participate in the walk is $5 and includes a commemorative T-shirt.

The event is open to anyone who is interested in attending. Registration can be done when arriving at the park on the day of the event.
