Kid Events in Southern Maryland
July 11 -12
I think we’ll get a break from the rain this weekend!! Can I get a Whoop Whoop?!? There are many things going on in Southern Maryland this weekend but here are some of my favorites!!
GO SEE THE MINIONS!!
Showing in Movie Theaters Everywhere!
Evolving from single-celled yellow organisms at the dawn of time, Minions live to serve, but find themselves working for a continual series of unsuccessful masters, from T. Rex to Napoleon. Without a master to grovel for, the Minions fall into a deep depression. But one minion, Kevin, has a plan; accompanied by his pals Stuart and Bob, Kevin sets forth to find a new evil boss for his brethren to follow. Their search leads them to Scarlet Overkill, the world’s first-ever super-villainess.
