Cine en el Parque celebrates diversity at one of King County’s most beloved parks

Cine el ParqueFamilies had a blast at King County’s second-annual Cine en el Parque in Steve Cox Memorial Park in White Center on Aug. 6. The Spanish-language outdoor moving night was co-sponsored by White Center Community Development Association and King County Parks. Cine en el Parque was a special opportunity for us to welcome everybody to one of our beautiful parks and build community.

King County screened the box office hit and animated Mexican film, “Un Gallo con Muchos Huevos” onto a 40-foot-tall inflatable movie screen (bigger than most indoor theatres) that turned the park into a spectacular outdoor cinema under the stars.

Before the movie, more than 500 people had an opportunity to visit with King County representatives and learn about Orca cards, recycling, pet adoption, elections, eco tips, emergency preparedness, King County Parks, wastewater treatment, the White Center Teen Program and rain gardens. They connected with nine community partner organizations that had booths at movie night, including King County Library System, White Center Community Development Association, Sea Mar, West Seattle Helpline, Highline College, Seattle Latino Film Festival, Latino Community Fund, 34th District Democrats, and United Way of King County.
