HOLLISTER, Mo. – Hollister residents are invited to a couple of different special events this week, starting with Hollister Night with the Springfield Cardinals on Thursday.
Hollister Area Chamber of Commerce Board Chairman Todd Aeschliman says last year’s event set a community attendance record at Hammons Field, and organizers are expecting an even bigger turnout this year for the game against the Northwest Arkansas Naturals. He says local students are very much involved:
Tickets cost 13-dollars and include an event t-shirt. Tickets are available at the chamber office as well as the Hollister Schools Central Office, and at Country Mart and Ink Works.
Hollister residents are also invited to Free Movie Night in the Park on Friday. Activities begin at 7 p.m. at Chad A. Fuqua Memorial Park, next to City Hall, with a showing of “Hotel Transylvania 2” starting shortly after sunset.
Participants are asked to bring a lawn chair or blanket. The event includes free popcorn, with soda and water available for 1-dollar a bottle.
