Folks headed downtown Tuesday to catch a movie on the big inflatable screen and have some fun, during Sterling Main Street’s first Movies at Grandon of the year at Central Memorial Park. The free, all-ages event is held every other Tuesday throughout the summer and features family-friendly films, snacks, and lots of fun before the show begins. Among the pre-show activities: Sterling firefighters stop by in their big red rig when they’re available to visit with kids, fun inflatables, and the Sterling-Rock Falls Family YMCA gets folks to “Move Before the Movies.” The shows begin at dusk, but the fun begins at 6 p.m. Go to sterlingmainstreet.org and click on the Events & Activities link for coming attractions.
