Local News

FRITCH, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — Lake Meredith National Recreation Area is set to host the first of three “Movies on the Lake” events this year starting on Saturday, June 19, according to a news release from the National Park Service.

Located at the Fritch Fortress Amphitheater in Lake Meredith, these upcoming events are part of the “Evening Program Series” sponsored by the Friends of Lake Meredith and Alibates, while the movies are sponsored by the donations from the Wright-On Bait, Tackle & Watercraft Rental and Phillips 66.

The movies that are showing are free to the public through the end of July and according to the release the “Snack Shack” will be staffed by member of the “Friends Group.” Concession items include popcorn, candy bars, water and soft drinks and the sales and donations from the “Snack Shack” will “offset the cost of purchasing the movie copyrights and the possibility of a fireworks show next year,” the release said.
