Live at the Park was put on hold in 2020 because of the pandemic. Movies in the Park returned this spring and summer but were scaled back to accommodate state health and safety guidelines.

“We’re so excited to bring the community together again for our concerts and movies in Founders Park,” Mayor Brenda Bozeman said. “If this last year and a half has taught us anything, it’s that we’re stronger together. We look forward to celebrating that renewed sense of community and the people who make Leland so special with music and movies under the stars.”
