Parents and children alike participated in the events held on the Winchester-Clark County Bluegrass Community and Technical College campus during the first of three Moonlight Movie Nights Friday.

Several booths were set up for people to visit with games and free items, from Chap-Stick to coloring pages.

Hazel Scott, who was playing a disc drop game with her daughter at the Members Heritage Credit Union booth, said her family comes to the event every year.

“We love it,” Scott said.

Children expelled their energy before the movie in a bounce house and a University of Kentucky Wildcat inspired inflatable slide.

Winchester Fire-EMS firefighters sprayed water from their platform sprinkler to give children a fun way to beat the 90-degree heat of the afternoon and P.J. the clown kept a line of guest most of the evening with his balloon art being in high demand.

Campus Director Bruce Manley was happy about the event turnout and said BCTC was the “perfect space” to hold the event because when there is “a ton of people, it doesn’t feel crowded.”

Some guest arrived early, but by 7 p.m. Friday, the event was in full swing.

After the sun went down, “Dumbo” played on a giant blow-up screen set up on the campus grounds.

BCTC will host two more movie nights Friday and July 26.
