Movies Under The Stars – August 5, 12, 19, 26 2017

Every Saturday night in the month of August, the community enjoyed watching a free movie on a 3-storey high big screen outdoors at Holland Park. Events started well before the movie with local performers and musicians entertaining the crowds as well as activities such as crafts and face painting for the kids. We were thrilled to sponsor this event, be a part of the activities and develop new relationships within the community.
