The Williston Community Builders is a group that is committed to developing new and innovative attractions that enhance the quality of life in Williston, North Dakota. They have taken part in several community projects and activities. 

One thing that Williston has been missing for many years is an outdoor pool.  To bring back an outdoor pool to Williston, Williston Community Builders have teamed up with the Pool Action Committee. The City of Williston has donated a 3 acre plot of land next to Cutting Field that is going to be the location of Williston Water World. 

The Community Builders have been holding many fundraisers to accomplish this goal, including Giving Hearts Day and Pints for a Pool. They pledged their 2021 and 2022 Festival of Trees proceeds to the project as well. So far, thanks to generous donors, they have raised over $8,254,183. They will break ground in July 2023, and hope to have Williston Water World open in June of 2024.

They've been doing a popular free movie event the last few months that has been successful  - Poppin for a Pool. This partnership with the Grand Theatre is special. They offer some of your favorite, family friendly, nostalgic, FREE movies for one day only each month and all the proceeds from popcorn sales will go to Williston Water World.

Tonight is the final free movie event! There will be two movies to choose from - showing at the North Grand Theater. Doors open at 4:30pm and Showtime is 5:15pm. Movies are FREE to attend and all other sales are cash only.

The movies tonight (May 18) are movies are Lego Batman and The Blind Side.
They will also be offering drive up options for those who can’t make the movie but still want to support the cause and sneak some popcorn home. From 5pm-7pm, your favorite Community Builders will be offering curbside popcorn sales on each of those days. Sneak out of work a little early, pick the kids up, and come have an early afternoon movie before dinner and bedtime.
