Tonight, Friday September 7th is going to be a magical evening. With great weather in the forecast, clear skies, and the popular The Greatest Showman movie playing, get ready for an exciting evening with hundreds of your fellow neighbors in downtown Rochester. Because this is our first-ever showing in Parcel 5 downtown, we thought we'd give some quick pointers so you can be prepared to enjoy the evening.


1. Find Parcel 5!

If you know where Tower280 is, the Democrat & Chronicle, Fuego Coffee, the Liberty Pole, or Sibley's, you'll find Parcel 5. This is what you're looking for! Need a map? Use this one: Parcel 5 (285 E. Main Street)


2. Bring your own seating

Parcel 5, to say the least, is mostly a square of gravel, rocks, and dirt. But that won't stop us from enjoying this area right in the heart of downtown tonight. You'll want to be prepared and bring your own seating with possibly a blanket to put the seating on. Get creative - just because the moon is a bunch of dust and rocks, doesn't mean it's any less important or useful to us. 

Got a yoga mat, couch cushion, pool floatie or something else that will work? Bring it!


3. Bring a blanket and/or some warm clothing

The good thing is that the storms came through already and cleared the skies. That means the warm weather is behind us now, and we'll be enjoying a cool evening under the stars with 65-ish degree weather. Bring a blanket, hoodie, or whatever else is going to keep you cozy during the movie as it'll be playing from 8p-10pm (estimate). 


4. Parking is abundant all around Parcel 5

There is metered parking that is FREE (after 6pm) on ALL sides of Parcel 5. Plus, our Title Sponsor Buckingham Properties is opening the Midtown Garage (underground parking!) for FREE tonight from 6-11pm. That's over a thousand spaces of FREE parking....need we say more? OK, we'll also have bike racks available...YES, we did say more! 


5. FREE Jetblue Terra Blues Chips, Water, Popcorn and Giveaways

Make sure to stop by the Washington Square Park Community Association, Buckingham Properties, and 88 on Elm tables tonight for some FREE giveaways and sign up for the FREE raffles. Yes, FREE. The Official Airline of the MWADV, Jetblue, will be giving away its signature Terra Blues potato chips (those same ones that you can enjoy on any Jetblue flight!), 88 on Elm will be popping and handing out free popcorn and Buckingham Properties will have complimentary water for attendees. 

Make sure to sign up for our FREE raffles tonight at the WSPCA table, because, as always, we'll have local giveaways to great spots like The Little Theatre, Rochester Brainery, ROC Brewing, Upstate Social Sessions and more. And get this - tonight we'll be picking our Grand-Prize winner for 2-Round-Trip tickets on Jetblue anywhere Jetblue flies. Pretty cool, right!? 


6. Dine With Us!
