We’re counting down the best ways to spend your summer in Carlsbad Village, and at number six is the much-anticipated Flicks at the Fountain. The 2024 season begins on Thursday, July 11th, with Disney’s beloved classic, “The Little Mermaid” (rated G). Dive into the captivating tale of Ariel, a young mermaid who dreams of exploring the human world. In her quest for love and adventure, Ariel makes a daring deal with the sea witch Ursula, trading her voice for human legs to win the heart of Prince Eric. This timeless story of love, sacrifice, and self-discovery will delight audiences of all ages. Special thanks to Pure Project and Beach City Smoothies for supporting this magical evening.
