Family events happening tonight in South MS

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -
Families and friends will gather under the stars in two coastal cities for movie night on Friday. 
In Biloxi, the Drive-In Movie series will feature "The Lego Movie." Before the film, there will be door prizes, contests and lots of family fun. Fun Lego activities and a giant water slide will also be set up.
The movie will begin at dark at the Biloxi Town Green located on Highway 90 between Lameuse and Main Streets. Admission is one can or bag of dog or cat food for the Humane Society of South Mississippi.
In Pascagoula, there will be a free showing of the movie "Happy Feet" at Point Park, located at 500 Beach Boulevard. The movie will begin at 8:15 p.m. 
Before the film, there will be a full lineup of free children's activities, starting at 6 p.m., to engage and educate children about their feathered neighbors. Kids will have the chance to try to win over a female least tern by offering her a fish in a pin the tail on the donkey style game that teaches about the courtship patterns of breeding birds.  
Families can also play, paint and decorate a cornhole board that will be used at educational events along the Coast. The Audubon Center will also bring pictures, scopes and binoculars so that families can explore and learn about the beach.
In case of rain, all activities will be moved to the Pascagoula Recreation Center at 2935 Pascagoula Street.
