Enjoy the movie The War with Grandpa this weekend when Bongaree hosts Movie in Park. It’s part of Moreton Bay Regional Council’s new bumper community events program for 2022.

The film will be screened on Saturday, July 30 from 4.30-7.30pm at Brennan Park, 1 South Esplanade, Bongaree. The movie is expected to start at 5.30pm. Entry is free.

The event is being presented by Moreton Bay Regional Council, delivered by Moreton Bay Region Industry and Tourism (MBRIT).

Movie snacks will be available for sale before the movie and Bribie Island Lions will be cooking a sausage sizzle.

Bumper community events program

Mayor Peter Flannery says Council is delivering 43 free community events this financial year in partnership with MBRIT.

“We’ve heard loud and clear that locals want more festivals and activities in their suburbs and neighbourhoods, so we’re delivering,” Mayor Flannery says.

“There will be a Council-sponsored party somewhere in Moreton Bay almost every week, thanks to our new jam-packed events calendar.

“I encourage Bribie Island locals to also get out and see some of the new gigs we’re launching like ‘Jazz and Shiraz’ in Newport, a ‘Pooches in the Park’ event in Kallangur and a Street Fair through Margate.”

Councillor Brooke Savige (Div 1) says the movie will be fun for the whole family.

“Not just for the free movie but for the opportunity to bring our community together through a relaxing night under the stars,” she says.

“This movie is like a modern day Dennis the Menace with lots of pranks, family mayhem, and laugh-out-loud fun for everyone.

“I’m so excited to be bringing our community back together through initiatives like this, especially for local families.”

MBRIT CEO and Founder Shane Newcombe says smaller community events in local parks are the perfect way to bring residents together in their own neighbourhoods.

“You can grab the kids, some chairs and blankets and walk to these events with your neighbours and friends,” Mr Newcombe says.

“They truly are community events and we can’t wait to roll out this program during the coming year.”
