 Things to do 

The Springfield Parks & Recreation Department is excited to partner with Walmart of Springfield to bring free, family-friendly movies to Springfield. Every 3rd Friday night during the summer. There is also a summer/fall concert series every first Friday of the month from June til October.

One thing that is happening currently right now that's getting a lot of attention as of late is the theater. So right in the square there used to be a theater with A LOT of history. It started as Capital Theatre in 1939 and then it was Carmike for a very long time until it was shut down as AMC 1 but it has been recently been purchased by a local investment company to revitalize the original Capital Theatre into a Performance and Arts Theatre! But if you're still in the mood for a movie and not a play then Springfield can still help. It has been confirmed that there will be a drive in theater coming in 2024.
