Every time we hear about a new event happening in our area it makes me so happy. No really, it does. It has been so many months in quarantine and I would like to think we are all ready for this pandemic to be over.

Even though we have no clue when the pandemic will actually be over, a lot of different places are trying to put together some sort of events to keep us busy and entertained. The Mercer County Park Commission is one of those places that is trying to bring some sort of fun to our area.

In a Facebook post, Mercer County Park Commission stated that starting September 4th, and going all the way until October 3rd, the Mercer County Park will be hosting some new events. Throughout the whole month, you will be able to attend either a drive-in movie night or a drive-in concert.

Here is the schedule shared on Mercer County Park Commission's Facebook:

It was also stated in the Facebook post that the doors will open an hour before showtime and vehicles will be assigned a designated spot to park and enjoy the movie night or concert. Once the capacity is met, the parking lots will be closed.
