Macy’s and Verne Drive-In host family event

Join a free family night at the drive-in!

The Verne Drive-In in Luverne, Minn., is celebrating 80 years this season with its annual Macy’s special event.

On Thursday night, families are welcome to enjoy carnival games, prizes, music and, of course, movies. At dusk, “The Smurfs” will be shown and will also include a sneak peek of “Smurfs 2,” which opens July 31. The second movie showing is “Man of Steel.”

Gates open at 6 p.m., and the first 100 cars to arrive will receive a bag full of treats, including a Macy’s gift card.

The drive-in has a full concession stand selling pretzels, pizzas, hot dogs, snacks, smoothies and ice cream. Call 507-283-0007 with questions.
