Outdoor Movie Goes On Despite EEE Threat in Amherst

AMHERST, Mass. (WGGB) — Despite an announcement Tuesday night that a mosquito with EEE was found in Amherst, the “Hot Summer Night” outdoor family movie event went ahead on the town common.

The risk in Amherst is at “moderate” so organizers say they are concerned but have planned ahead.

“We brought all of our cans of bug spray. I am going to make an announcement before the movie starts, letting people know if they forgot it to go to the info booth. We have backup if they need it,” says¬†Sarah Lacour, the “Hot Summer Night” organizer.
