UPDATE—FRAZIER PARK, CA (Saturday, July 10, 2014 at 7:42 p.m.)—The Movies in the Park event is canceled for tonight and will be rescheduled for a date in August, according to Supervisor David Couch who spoke with The Mountain Enterprise at the park at 7:30 p.m. Couch drove up to the mountain to meet the movie display company crew and check conditions. Wet grass and the possibility of more rain this evening helped the supervisor make the decision he said.
