Ready to wind down after a long work week? Ivanhoe Park Brewing Co has the perfect family friendly event for you and it’s FREE.
Friday night brew and views happen a few times each month from 6:00-9pm. You can enjoy your favorite brews while viewing a movie outside. The brewery transformed their parking lot into an outdoor movie theatre, using a projector and blow up screen. Such a fun idea!
This Friday was The Parent Trap, which made my 90’s girl heart over the moon. My daughter loved it, it was cool sharing a childhood favorite with her. Bring your own chairs and blankets to create a comfortable space in the parking lot to enjoy the movie! They had lawn chairs and barrel table tops set up but feel free to bring your own, there is plenty of room. This event is dog friendly so bring your pup if you would like!
There were two food options available, the SwedeDISH food truck and a tent with barbecue. We brought snacks to munch on as well, all of the yummy smells from the food truck kept us hungry. It can be difficult to picnic with kids sometimes, but they have a covered area with seating if you need. The weather was perfect for this event. The kids danced and ran around prior to the movie starting. When the movie started we relaxed, local beer in hand! We ordered two beers to try, the Peanut Butter & Jelly and the S’mores. Both stouts. Both delicious. Next time we will check out the food trucks.
I love finding new family friendly events and things to do in Central Florida, it’s a bonus when I find a free event. 10/10 recommend for a chill night with the family.
