The event is free and the movie ‘Zootopia’ will be shown.

Alcohol and glass containers are prohibited in the park.

Everyone is invited to bring lawn chairs and blankets to attend this free event.

The sale will take place from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13 located on Hwy. 380 just northeast of Princeton Lakes.

Participation costs are $20 for a 10-foot by 10-foot space.

Proceeds will go to the city’s community events fund.

To participate, fill out a yard sale application found at www.princetontx.gov and return to city hall.
