FAIRFIELD - An air quality alert, a chance of rain and overcast skies didn’t keep the crowd away from Jennings Beach Friday evening as Fairfield Parks & Recreation presented its latest Sand Jam / Movie Night.

DJ Marvin Parsons was at the helm for the music portion of the event, joined by the Double Up Dance Team. Families kicked up their heels and even answered trivia questions.

As the sky darkened, event coordinator Ginna Paules fired up her DVD player to project the popular animated film, “Minions”, on an inflatable screen. Families settled back with dinner and drinks to enjoy the production together.
