Drive-in movies and kites for kids coming up


From kites to drive-in movies, expect a fun, family-filled weekend in Birch Bay June 18 and 19.

Drive-in movies at Birch Bay Waterslides, with the humorous word play “dive-in movies,” are back for a second year. Gates at 4874 Birch Bay-Lynden Road will open 8 p.m. and the movie will start around 9:30 p.m. Friday, June 18. Angry Birds 2 will take over the big screen for $20 per vehicle that covers all passengers.

If movies weren’t enough excitement to kick off summer, free kites will be available to children during Kites for Kids Day on Saturday, June 19. Birch Bay Chamber of Commerce and Friends of Birch Bay Library will hand out the kites during the come-and-go event, also a fundraiser for the future Birch Bay Vogt Community

The event will go from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday at the site of the future Birch Bay library, 7968 Birch Bay Drive. Families can cool off with Kona Ice’s shaved ice until 3 p.m. Blaine school district superintendent Christopher Granger, Whatcom County deputy Derek Jones and others will be telling children stories starting at 12 p.m., 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. Blaine-Birch Bay Park and Recreation District 2 will host kids’ activities and crafts, some of which are Angry Birds themed, throughout the day.

Masks and social distancing will be required at the event. More than a couple of hundred kites will be available until they run out.
