Discover Downtown Series of Events Coming to Prosper | Moonlight Movie Kicks Off the Series on April 23 with a Showing of Disney’s Encanto

April 12, 2022

The Discover Downtown Series, a set of four themed events, is coming to Downtown Prosper in 2022!  Presented by Parks and Recreation in partnership with the Prosper Economic Development Corporation (PEDC), each event will be free of charge and hosted as an opportunity for the community to experience the increasing energy in Downtown Prosper.

The series begins with the “Moonlight Movie” at Prosper Town Hall, 250 W. First Street, on Saturday, April 23. At 7:00 pm, the community is invited to come have fun with lawn games, balloon artists, shaved ice, and popcorn. At 8:30pm, it’s time to settle in for the family movie, Encanto, which will be shown in the parking lot. Bring lawn chairs and blankets and cozy up for the show! Please plan to enter the Town Hall area from Main Street and park on the north side of the building.

The Discover Downtown Series will continue through the year with live music in June, Fun in the Sun children’s event in July, and Paws on Broadway for dogs and owners in September. Prior to the events, downtown restaurants and bars will be open for food and beverages.

“Parks and Recreation is excited to kick off the Discover Downtown Event Series with our Moonlight Movie,” said Dan Baker, Director of Parks and Recreation. “We want our residents to visit downtown early, check out the businesses who call this area home, and then finish their night at Town Hall with a movie!”

Mary Ann Moon, Executive Director of the Prosper Economic Development Corporation said” The PEDC is pleased to partner with our Town’s Parks and Recreation Department to help fund and support “Discovering Downtown.” It is our goal to attract residents and visitors to our Downtown community. As we develop and grow, what is one of Prosper’s greatest assets, how could we not lend a hand? Movies, music, kids, pets and unique businesses make for the perfect mix of a vibrant Downtown.
