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.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
