National Parks and Recreation Month Movie Madness Tournament and End-of-Summer Movie

Beginning in 2017, Auburn Parks and Recreation hosted the National Parks and Recreation Month Movie Madness Tournament, a 4-week tournament on Facebook that presents Auburn residents with a 16-movie pool. Through weekly voting and a bracket, Auburn residents vote to choose the End-of-Summer Movie.

The National Parks and Recreation Month Movie Madness Tournament is held during the month of July and will return in 2019.
