Family Movie Night Coming Next Week to Oskaloosa


The Mahaska County YMCA and Osky Food Park announced a special Family Movie Night on Friday, May 31, 2024.

This fun-filled evening will take place at the Osky Food Park located at 610 1st Ave. West. Admission is free, and everyone is invited to attend. A Facebook event has been created where patrons can RSVP and get all the latest updates.

The evening’s feature presentation will be the Disney animated film Toy Story 3, which will begin at 7:00 PM. The movie will be shown on a large, bright LED screen in the grassy lot south of the food trucks, providing a comfortable outdoor setting. Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets or lawn chairs for a cozy viewing experience. Please note that no vehicles or golf carts will be allowed on the grass, and the park asks that pets stay at home.

In addition to the movie, the event will feature yard games for both kids and adults starting at 5:00 PM. Multiple food and concession trucks will be available from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM, offering a variety of delicious options, including Nina’s Tacos, Lou-Lou B’s, Pizza Ranch, Sno Biz, Mahaska Kettle Corn, and Mahaska Bottling Soda Fountain.

Katy Greene, Director of Membership and Marketing at Mahaska County YMCA, shared her excitement about the event, stating, “We wanted to create an opportunity for families to come together, especially with the local movie theater being closed for the summer. This event is a great way for the community to enjoy an evening of free entertainment and delicious food.”

The idea for this event originated from Loken Vande Vegte of Osky Food Park, who saw the potential for a collaborative community event. “We want to create an event that brings our community together, offering a fun and free activity for families,” says Vande Vegte. “Partnering with the Mahaska County YMCA felt like the perfect way to make this happen. I’m excited to see everyone come out, enjoy some great food from our local trucks, and watch Toy Story 3 under the stars. It’s going to be a fantastic night for all ages!”

In case of rain, the event will be rescheduled to Sunday, June 2, 2024.
