Tarentum spray park open, movie series starts Thursday

"The Lego Movie 2" will start Tarentum’s summer "Movies by the River" series at dusk on Thursday, May 23, 2019.

With spring firmly in place and the first day of summer just a month away, life is returning to Tarentum’s Riverview Memorial Park.

The spray park in the First Avenue park has reopened, and a free monthly movie series will start Thursday.

The first showing for “Movies by the River” will be “The Lego Movie 2.” The movies will start at dusk and be shown in the green space near the pump house at Main Street, borough Council President Erika Josefoski said.

Those attending can bring blankets or chairs. Guests can bring their own refreshments or buy from a food truck.

Future movies are “Ralph Breaks the Internet” on June 20; “Avengers: Endgame” on July 19; and “Incredibles 2” on Aug. 21.

The spray park, near Corbet Street, has opened for the season. It’s in operation from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

“We will be getting new shade sails later this year, which are desperately needed there,” Josefoski said.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
