Morton said the films are a way to “build community involvement” and introduce the parks to non-residents.
The first of two food truck fairs will be held from 5 to 9 p.m. Thursday at Monroe Community Park.
Eighteen food trucks are registered to sell a wide range of food and Cassette Junkies, a live band that plays hits from the 70s, 80s and 90s, will perform.
Joshua King, public information officer for the Monroe Police Department, said auxiliary officers and scouts will be selling drinks to support their programs.
King said last spring that the park was packed with people and that he expects “the same or bigger crowds” on Thursday.
“It will be a good time,” King said.
He said the event also gives the Monroe community an opportunity to interact with police officers and “build positive relationships.”
The fall Food Truck Fair is scheduled for September 15th.
