Bring the family to the free Movie in the Park Griffin event on September 10 at Griffin State School.

It’s part of Moreton Bay Regional Council’s bumper community events program for 2022.

The film, Clifford The Big Red Dog, will be screened at the event which is on from 5-8pm. The movie is expected to start about 6pm.

Movie in the Park Griffin 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 Beyond Church will be cooking a sausage sizzle.

There’s also free facepainting before the movie. The event will conclude with a fireworks display provided by Griffin State School about 8pm. Nearby residents are asked to ensure their pets are secure at this time.

Moreton Bay Regional Councillor Jodie Shipway (Div 4) says Clifford the Big Red Dog is big enough for the whole family to enjoy.

“As a mum of two boys, a giant red dog sounds like a nightmare, but the good news is he’s not real and he’ll keep your family entertained for a few hours if you come to the Griffin Movie in the Park this Saturday,” she says.

“Not only can you sit under the stars with a picnic and blanket, but you can enjoy the party with food trucks, barbecue and movie snacks before the show starts.

“So, grab the family, snuggle in and enjoy a great night out together.”

Big program of events

Mayor Peter Flannery says this is one of dozens of events being held this financial year, in direct response to calls from locals for more festivals and activities in their suburbs and neighbourhoods.

“We’ve heard you and we’re acting to deliver more great local events close to home, so it’s close to home and easy for local families,” he says.

“In the era of Netflix, I love the idea of locals heading out and coming together for a movie. It’s the closest this generation will get to a drive-in, I think.”

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.
