Global Running Day
Each year on the first Wednesday in June, people all over the globe get moving as part of Global Running Day, a worldwide celebration of the sport. It's about fun and fitness for people of all ages. Global Running Day is the evolution of National Running Day in the U.S., which was started in 2009 by leading running organizations and races throughout the nation.
National Drive In Movie Day
On this day in 1933, eager motorists park their automobiles on the grounds of Park-In Theaters, the first-ever drive-in movie theater, located on Crescent Boulevard in Camden, New Jersey. Park-In Theaters was the brainchild of Richard Hollingshead, a movie fan and a sales manager. Reportedly inspired by his mother's struggle to sit comfortably in traditional movie theater seats, Hollingshead came up with the idea of an open-air theater where patrons watched movies in the comfort of their own automobiles.
