Sunday evening, August 1, the Lawn Chair Film Festival once again packed the parking lot at the corner of Hamilton and Ames in Old Town Saginaw.

The crowd arrived long before sundown (and showtime) to enjoy all the festivities offered by the sponsors of Family Night: face painting, bracelet making, free suckers, stickers, laughs!

Though some staked out their territory as Scott Baker and the Universal Expressions rocked the asphalt, others chose to hang around, flirting and joking, until the featured film, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, lit up the brick wall.

There are two films left in the 2010 series: An Education will be shown on August 8, and Edward Scissorhands can be seen on August 15. The movies start at sundown, but arrive early to stock up on some munchies and to find a spot, and to hear the live music — John Vasquez and the Bearinger Boys will play at 7 on August 15.
