National Night Out Events 2017 South Shore Boston

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods a safer, better place to live. Together, we are making that happen. 

National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community and provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.

Clayborn played a vital role in bringing the Patriots to respectability in the late 1970s and early ‘80s. During his 13 seasons in New England, he helped lead the Patriots to 10 winning seasons, including four postseason berths. He also set a franchise record by playing in 161 consecutive games. Be sure to get your seats early in the NRG plaza to watch Robert Kraft and other Patriots Alumni present Clayborn with his Patriots Hall of Fame jacket.

Free or Cheap Summer movies for the kids South Shore Boston 2017

Some movie theaters on the South Shore offer free or discount rates for kids movies during the 2017 summer season.   (Check out the cheap  & free South Shore Boston Fun Guide 2017)Free or Cheap Summer movies for the kids South Shore Boston 2017

Most movie theater will be playing the big summer blockbusters, but don’t expect them to include these in the free or very cheap summer movie program. Free summer movie programs typically feature G- or PG-rated movies that have already been released on DVD. However kids really don’t care-they just LOVE going to the movies.

Free and cheap summer movies for kids are usually shown early in the day to leave the screens available for other movies later in the day. Everyone loves free stuff. So if you’re planning to take the kids to a free or cheap showing, be sure to get there early. Many summer camps will show up. I would recommend getting there 30-40 minutes before the show starts. Many summer movie programs are run on a first-come, first-serve basis. Don’t miss out by showing up at the last minute.

Be prepared to spend the same amount of money for a bag of popcorn during the free show as you would at a showing of the latest movies.
