Grab your blanket, pillow and pack the picnic basket, because Film Night in the Park returns to Creek Park in San Anselmo with three screenings for the holiday weekend as it continues its outdoor summer film festival. The three-night extravaganza starts with Sixteen Candles on Friday, Up on Saturday and Avatar on Sunday.
- Where: Creek Park, Sir Francis Drake and Center Boulevards, San Anselmo
- Time: All shows, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, start at 8 p.m.
- Reminiscent of the drive-in movies of yesteryear, Film Night in the Park is unique for its audience participation of cheers for heroes, boos and hisses for villains, sing-a-longs and hearty applause. Bring blankets, pillows, backrest and low chairs. On Friday, there will be a screening of John Hughe's 80s classic, Sixteen Candles. Relive the highs and lows of teenager-dom with this family favorite!

Join club-goers on 19 Broadway's free First Friday's Reggae Party, featuring Soundproof International. At 9 p.m. these dj's will start spinning the best in reggae, roots, dancehall and more!
Soundproof International draws their influence from all those that can make people get on the dance floor. Reggae, dancehall, and hip-hop are the group's main focus when it comes to spinning records. Any DJ who rocks the crowd or artist who steals the show is their influence.
Take a stroll with the family in this warm weather and check out the San Anselmo Historical Walk as it guides you on a tour of the history around town. Your kids will enjoy the family time -- and they might even learn something!
- Where: San Anselmo Historical Museum, 110 Tunstead Ave, San Anselmo
- Time: self-guided
The San Anselmo Historical Commission presents A Historical Walk Through San Anselmo. The self-guided, self-paced stroll through San Anselmo history begins at Town Hall. The tour moves along the town's scenic back roads, first to the quiet beauty of the San Francisco Theological Seminary, then onward to the stately Robson-Harrington property and back again to the business district, with a side trip to the historic Hub and points of interest on the east side of Sir Francis Drake Boulevard. The tour, then, ends where it began at Town Hall.
To take the tour on your own buy the tour booklet -- available for $5 at the Library, Town Hall offices, the Historical Museum and the Recreation Department -- and follow along at your own pace. There is also an option of enhancing the tour with the audio version created by Ben Burtt. Hear music and the sounds of old San Anselmo along with the tour narrative. Download the audio to an iPod or mp3 player from the Historical Museum website.
Check out the weekly open mic night after a day of relaxing.
