Interior Savings Movie in The Park a hit

Movie in the Park, Barriere

Youngsters had a great time making bubbles before it was dark enough for the movie to start.

Barriere’s Moonlight Movie Night, in Fadear Park, was sponsored by Interior Savings, and the event turned out splendidly.  The crowd was graced  with beautiful weather, although it did get a little chilly by the time the movie had ended.

Prior to the movie, which was shown on Aug. 18., all sorts of activities for the kids were held such as bubbles, hula hoops, and sack races.  The Interior Savings Fat Cat strolled around the park, followed by an ever changing group of kids.  Balloons filled with helium where handed out to the children,  and throughout the evening every few minutes another balloon would escape and go sailing off into the clear blue sky as it floated serenely southward.

Hot dogs and hamburgers sizzled on the grill, and wafted tantalizing smells into the crowd; and the popcorn and cotton candy sellers did a brisk business.

The 50/50 draw winning number was called just before the movie started, with the winner receiving $36; and four door prizes were also handed out.

As the sun dipped down behind the hills, people hurried to get their last bags of popcorn, and everyone settled down to watch the movie “Rio”.

While the final count, both of participants and funds raised, is not yet in, a rough estimate on the head count would put the crowd at close to 200, give or take a few.

Money raised from the event will go to the North Thompson Volunteer Centre to assist with their community programs.
