AVON ” The town of Avon will again host the Lakeside Cinema series starting today in Nottingham Park, featuring “Grease” with John Travolta and Olivia Newton John. This is the third year Avon is providing this free family event, which will run through Friday, Aug. 18.

A large movie screen is assembled and guests are invited to bring a picnic basket, blanket and lawn chair to stretch out and enjoy a free movie. Each week the town will provide something unique related to the featured film. For example, this week the first 100 people will enjoy a free root beer float, a favorite dessert of the 1950s. Concessions from vendors will also be available.

Pre-event activities start at 7 p.m. The movie starts at dusk around 8-8:30 p.m.
