On Saturday (April 9) Casino Community Garden will transform into a holiday festival venue for the very first Flicks In The Sticks open air cinema and family festival.

The centre is promising a whole swag of activities at the garden from 4pm until late, with entertainment and activities for kids, families, young adults and grown ups too.

As the name suggests, there will be an outdoor movie screening of the PG rated movie Inside Out, so if you want to enjoy this film under the stars, make sure you bring a picnic blanket, some cushions or a chair and some warm clothes.

To keep the kids entertained, we’ll have a petting zoo, a jumping castle, face painting artists and a slightly belated Easter egg hunt.

For the young at heart, there will be live local music and a silent disco.

And for everyone to enjoy, there’s games, amusement rides, raffles and prizes.

If you feel a bit peckish, you can peruse the market stalls selling locally produced food, produce and tasty snacks and refreshments.

Entry by gold coin donation.

This is a drug and alcohol free event.
