The Goonies Playing Treasure Mountain Festival Weekend

Hey you guys!

We asked the community to choose what classic movie they would like to see Treasure Mountain Festival weekend, and the title we kept seeing pop up was The Goonies.

The 1985 kid’s adventure flick will be playing at Warner’s Drive-In TMF weekend, on Friday, Sept. 15 and Saturday, Sept. 16. The movie will start at around 8:15. The movie is rated PG, but take note that this was before the PG-13 rating was implemented, and language and situations are more in line with a PG-13 film.

There will also be special pricing for this weekend. Tickets for ages 12 and older are $3.00, and kids (ages 5-11) tickets are just $1.00. Children under 5 get in for free.

We are also selling chances to win a new John Deere XUV560 Gator. Find us near the festival grounds on the helipad.
