A summer tradition for many families in the Rockford area is to watch movies on the lawn of Davis Park for Friday Night Flix.

Starting in June the traditional outdoor movies on the lawn returns with one small change.

According to WIFR Friday Night Flix will return to Davis Park, but instead of having movies every Friday night, the films will be shown the first Friday of every month.

The reasoning for this change is due to the increase of other events and activities that have been happening in the downtown area. RAVE Chairman, Craig Thomas, said "that attendance was down last year because of the other events."

When Friday Night Flix first began it was basically the only event that was happening downtown and it made it possible to do every Friday night. now that the downtown area has taken off with various events in the summer, like the Rockford City Market, newer businesses and restaurants, there are now more options for families to choose to do together.

Friday Night Flix will return in June, to keep up to date on the movies that will be shown and more visit their Facebook page: Friday Night Flix.
