Drive-in movies a success for King City
On Oct. 30 and 31, the Salinas Valley Fair presented Movies on the Midway, drive-in movies.
A first for King City, the drive-in featured the movies “Coco” on Friday night and “Hocus Pocus” as a Halloween finale. Each carload of moviegoers received a complimentary bag of goodies to enjoy as they watched their movie.
To add to the drive-in moviegoers’ delight, corndogs, funnel cakes and popcorn were available for purchase from Capital Concessions (aka Corndog Kevin).
The Salinas Valley Fair and its Board of Directors would like to send a huge thank you to our sponsors, Taylor Farms, Toro Petroleum, Calpine, Choppers, GIS Gonzales Irrigation, Nuno Iron and Manufacturing Inc., King City ACE and Holaday Seed Company. It was through the generosity of these sponsors that made this community event possible.
As with all events, there were volunteers behind the scenes; Drive-in Movie Committee, Deputy CEO Lauren Hamilton, Junior Fair Board and the SVF Board of Directors. These volunteers did everything from planning the event to parking cars to taking tickets at the gate — thank you! A very special thank you goes to our excellent projectionist, Mr. Tom Mooneyham.
These drive-in movies were put on in an effort to give our community a family-fun filled event to attend in keeping within our Covid-19 guidelines. The SVF hopes that the community members that participated in Movies on the Midway enjoyed them.
As Movies on the Midway was such a huge success, stay tuned for future movie dates.
