Riverdays (At Home) Schedule Changes

July 22nd, 2020

Midland Area Community Foundation (MACF) is adjusting the Riverdays (At Home) schedule due to a conflict with the Drive-In Movie Night.

 “Unfortunately, there was a scheduling mix up and we were unable to secure our Drive-In Movie Night Facilitator on the originally posted date,” said Riverdays Coordinator, Sara JacobsCarter. “We’re happy to be able to hold the event on Friday, July 31st, though.

 Riverdays will be screening the cult-classic film “Princess Bride” at Midland Fairgrounds on Friday, July 31st at 9:30pm. Vehicles can begin arriving at 8:30pm. Vehicles are instructed to use the Airport Road entrance. The Midland Fairgrounds can host up to 200 cars for a big screen movie. Spots are first come, first serve. Visit to secure your spot. Moviegoers are encouraged to bring their own food and beverages. Concessions will not be available on site.

 “With the changes involved with the Drive-In Movie Night, we’re moving the Riverdays Backyard Prom Alongs to Thursday, July 30th,” said JacobsCarter. “The event still aims to be a fun get together for small groups to safely distance and relive their prom!”

 Riverdays Backyard Prom Alongs on July 30th encourage you to get together with your significant other, close friends, or other small group to celebrate prom in your own backyard. Be sure to post pictures on the Riverdays Facebook Page and tag #RiverdaysMACF for a chance to be featured by Riverdays Social Media Staff. Staff will be recognizing best dressed, best theme, and other undetermined fun categories. MACF will be live streaming a DJ from 8pm to 10pm and posting a Spotify playlist, if you’d rather control the jams yourself.

 Anchoring the Riverdays weekend on Saturday, August 1st is the Riverdays Talent Showcase. MACF and Riverdays staff are still accepting your submissions until July 24th! This online talent show will feature your submissions, culminating in a montage of Midland’s most talented individuals. We’re putting out a talent call for you to submit an up to 5-minute video of your skills by visiting and clicking the Dropbox link. Submissions will be included in the final Talent Showcase on a first come, first serve basis. Submissions will be accepted through July 24th. The event will be streamed on the Riverdays Facebook Page on Saturday, August 1st at 6pm. A voting component will follow where Midland residents can select who they believe really brought the house down. The winner will receive eternal bragging rights and a super-secret prize.
