TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) -- No ba humbug here!

The City of Tallahassee's Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Affairs Department is hosting Movies in the Moonlight this winter. This series of family friendly, outdoor movies takes place once a month at various city parks.

December's screening is ready to get you into the holiday spirit, with  "A Christmas Carol." This theatrical retelling of Charles Dickens' classic novel features Jim Carrey as  Victorian-era miser Ebenezer Scrooge, who is taken on a journey of self-redemption, courtesy of several mysterious apparitions.

City leaders say, "this is also a great opportunity for families to explore before the movie begins. Find a new trail, playground or picnic spot before settling in for the movie. Each city park has unique amenities."

The upcoming Movies in the Moonlight is Friday, December 11, beginning at 6:30 p.m. at Lafayette Heritage Trail Park (4900 Heritage Park Blvd.).

It's free to take part, and there's also complimentary popcorn and drinks provided. Souvenir cups are available for the first 50 participants. Organizers recommend you bring a chair or blankets to sit on.
