Drive In Movie, Unalaska Style

With no movie theater in town, we have to be creative!   Our community engagement group, Alaska Kids are Our Kids (AKAOK) holds an annual event in which families work together to build a car from cardboard boxes or whatever else they choose, then haul their car to the elementary school gym for a "drive in movie."    The kids lounge in their cars while they enjoy a movie and good old  concession food like hot dogs, popcorn, and candy.   It's a great time for all and the cars get more elaborate each year!  Check out the Flintstones car, which took "best of show."  Amazing!

Awesome! I love it. I noted the Flintstone car--it even has little tiny rollers on the bottom! It is amazing how cute some of these were. Definitely gotta borrow this idea for Riverside! Our biggest problem would be finding that many big boxes! I bet it's easy for you guys, since they have to ship everything in in HUGE boxes. LOL
