Students from the Happy Valley Youth Council are busy gearing up for the City’s first-ever Pop-Up Drive-In Movie Night. Taking place on Saturday, Aug, 10, the teens will be running admission and snack shack sales and making sure moviegoers have what they need to enjoy the show.

The Happy Valley Youth Council is known for leading projects that have a significant impact on the community. Their initiatives include the Prescription Drug Turn-In event, teen driver safety, and suicide prevention awareness. The group also travels to Salem for an annual Youth Summit and has even ventured to Washington, D.C. to participate in important legislative conversations.

Proceeds from the Drive-In Movie sales will go to help cover costs associated with the Youth Council’s efforts throughout the year.

“Planning the Drive-In Movie event has been a lot of fun. We feel like we’re helping bring an interesting event to the community and encouraging people to get a better understanding of what our Youth Council is all about,” says Happy Valley Youth Council Chair, Paige Martin.

The feature film will be Guardians of the Galaxy, a high energy flick that follows five misfits as they band together to save the universe. East Happy Valley will play host to the event as an expansive field just off Hagen Road and 172nd Avenue will be transformed into the backdrop for this cinematic gathering. Gates will open at 6 p.m. with the film starting promptly at 8:30 p.m.

The City’s Youth Council has partnered with the Happy Valley Business Alliance and presenting sponsor, Kona Ice of North Clackamas, to help produce the Pop-Up Drive-In Movie Night.  If you would like to attend this special event, make sure you purchase your tickets online before they sell out. Cost is $20 per vehicle. Only 200 spots are available, so secure your seat by getting your tickets ahead of time. If spots remain, tickets will be sold at the event via cash only.  Food and beverage vendors will also be on-site. 

For further information and to purchase tickets, head to the City of Happy Valley website at www.happyvalleyor.gov.
