Bring the family to the free Movie in the Park Burpengary event on February 25 at St Eugene College.

It’s part of Moreton Bay Regional Council’s bumper community events program for 2023.

The film, Minions: The Rise of Gru (PG), will be screened at the event which is on from 6-9pm. The movie is expected to start about 7pm.

Movie in the Park Burpengary is presented by Moreton Bay Regional Council and supported by major sponsors Ausbuild and Moreton Daily.

Movie snacks will be available for sale before the movie and St Eugene College Café will be cooking a sausage sizzle.

There’s also the chance to meet a minion and free face painting.

Children and their families are encouraged to join in the fun and dress up as minions or Gru.

Big program of events

Mayor Peter Flannery says Margate’s Movie in the Park proved to be the most popular community event of 2022, with more than 800 people turning out.

“Let’s see if Burpengary can start 2023 by beating that record,” he says.

“Our 2022-23 Budget saw an enormous investment in events, following calls from locals for greater vibrancy with more festivals and activities in their suburbs and neighbourhoods.

“So, I’m thrilled to see locals turning out in record numbers and taking full advantage of these free events, and I’m proud to lead a Council so committed to providing entertainment in our region.”

Councillor Mark Booth (Div 2) says Movie in the Park Burpengary will proceed rain, hail, or shine thanks to St Eugene’s College allowing Council to use the undercover area.

“Movie in the Park is a fantastic initiative to bring our community on the grounds of St Eugene’s College for a fun and FREE family night out,” Cr Booth says.

“Obviously another Minions movie will be a hit with the kids, but this latest instalment is set back in the ‘70s so there’s some musical nostalgia and plenty of LOLs along the way for parents.

“Speaking of nostalgia, the voice cast features names including Julie Andrews, Michelle Yeoh and a childhood hero of mine … Jean-Claud Van Damme.

“So, mark Saturday, February 25 in your calendar and head down with your family, friends, and picnic blankets for a free night of local entertainment.”

Moreton Bay Region Industry and Tourism Founder and CEO Shane Newcombe says smaller community events at local venues 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.
