City of Brenham Community Services Specialist Crystal Locke says “Movies in the Park” could not happen if it weren’t for community supporters who sponsor the series, and bring popular movies to the park for an evening of free family fun. Locke gave a special thank you to this year’s Presenting Sponsors, Waste Connections and radio stations KTEX 106 and KWHI 1280.
