Submitted by on

Everyone rightly loves July 4th, but with the holiday falling on a Thursday this year you might be looking for some Friday fun too. Luckily, you can celebrate the day after Independence Day at Balboa Beach with an amazing all-you-can-eat meal and a great movie!

Start the evening at Balboa Pavilion with unlimited catfish and chicken catered by Riverside Grocery starting at 6 p.m. Along with your main course, your dinner also includes hushpuppies, slaw, fries, beans, tea and lemonade. Tickets are just $15 per person and can be purchased by clicking here.

After dinner, stick around for movie night on Balboa Beach! The night's feature presentation will be 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger starting at 9 p.m. This was the fifth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which nows spans 23 movies that have grossed over $21 billion in total! Food trucks and popcorn will be available for this free event, so come down and have a great time with your family.

Both of these fun events are presented by the Hot Springs Village Recreation Department as part of the 2019 Stars and Stripes Festival.
