Family Film Festival at Prudential Center’s South Garden (in Boston) was already on my summer list of Things to Do off the Beach in New England (see full list here), so the VIP treatment offered to my family for an opening night last Saturday only added to the fun.
The Festival is FREE and open to the Public. To enjoy your summer in the city to the fullest, families are invited to come as early as 6pm, (activities start at 7pm). It was a beautiful night in Boston last Saturday- we arrived at 6 and there were already a couple of families on the ground:
The movie (it was “Boxtrolls” night last Saturday) started shortly after sunset (around 8:20pm) and although packed at that time, you could still find a couple of spots for your blanket if you arrived late.
But then- who would want to miss a Magic 106.7 DANCE Party? (Can you spot Vi?)
There were Kelly Clarkson concert give always (she was performing in the area the following night) museum passes and other giveaways; as well as character greetings.
I have not come out to Prudential’s South Garden before, and the “enclosedness” of the space had a comfy and family-friendly feel. As much as I like to spend time out of the city on summer weekends, SUMMER IN THE CITY has its magic (not to mention, conveniences!)
As part of our “VIP” treatment package, we were catered delicious food from “5-napkin burger” (you can see that there is much more than burgers on the menu (although Vit did try their “original 5-napkin burger” which he loved).
For similar VIP experience at the Festival, the organizers are offering a Family Film Festival GiveAway of “5 Napkin” $50 Gift Card and Prudential Center’s picnic blanket ($60 total value); although you are not limited to use the card only during Saturday Festival time, it could enhance your Festival experience.
1. The giveaway is open from July 18, 2015, 12 am EST through 12:00 am EST on July 25, 2015.
