Movie Nights at the Rancho Mission Viejo Riding Park

As part of its obligation to provide community access and events, the Rancho Mission Viejo Riding Park will be hosting a pair of equestrian-themed family movies.  August 10th will be the animated film “Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron”  and August 17th will feature “Dreamer.”  While admission and parking is free, there are additional games and events onsite that will require a $10 wristband.  The event starts at 6 PM, with the movies scheduled to start at 8 PM.  Food will be available for purchase onsite, or guests can bring their own.  More information is available at the San Juan Capistrano city website:
