Suffolk has canceled two more summer concerts as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, but you’ll still be able to show up and have some summer fun.

The concerts were set for July 24 and July 31 at Bennett’s Creek Park.

The decision was made “consistent with best practices and recommendations from national, state and local health officials regarding the potential of community spread,” a city press release stated.

The good news is that two drive-in movies are now set for both dates at Bennett’s Creek Park, which is located at 3000 Bennetts Creek Park Road in North Suffolk. They are free and open to the public.

“Jumanji: The Next Level” will show on July 24. “Incredibles 2” will show July 31.

The park opens at 8 a.m. for parking, and the movies will begin about 8:30 p.m.

The films will be shown on a 40-foot screen. No concessions will be available, but you are welcome to bring your own food and snacks to the park.

Pets are welcome but must be on a leash when outside of the vehicle. Attendees must practice social distancing at the event.

The park will be closed from 7 to 8 p.m. each night to prepare.
