AllAboutDarien.com is pleased to be the official information site for Darien’s “Star-Gazing” Nights, Movies Under The Stars at Tilley Pond Park. With a giant movie screen set up (former Manhattanites might remember movie nights at Bryant Park?) and Gofer Ice Cream and buttered popcorn on-hand, I can’t think of a cooler way to enjoy a summer evening in one of my favorite Parks in Darien!
NEWLY-ADDED to these evenings is live music from 6pm to 8pm, plus The Bridgeport Sound Tigers mascot who will be on-hand to chaperone the slapshot machine they will be setting up! (They won’t be there on Casablanca night, but for all others they will be!)
