The City of Tampa and Friends of Tampa Recreation, Inc. (FOTR) have teamed together and are pleased to announce a series of free, family-fun films at Water Works Park this fall beginning this Saturday, October 4, 2014.

“Movie series have been one of the most popular events we do at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park. It only makes sense to move this year’s movie series to Water Works Park and to showcase historic Tampa Heights and the Hillsborough River,” said Mayor Bob Buckhorn.
