On August 17th we proudly present our free movie in Oakridge Park, featuring “Jurassic Park”. Bring a blanket or a deck chair and enjoy loads of activities for the whole family.
On Saturday August 18th our 9th annual street festival commences at 11:00 am for 12 fun filled hours. This truly is a community event involving numerous organizations showcasing all forms of “wheels”.
This year’s festival has something for everyone including two dynamic car shows, music, street performers, food and lots of free family fun. Located in Oakridge Park will be our Kid’s Zone area including dinosaurs, face painting, and dinosaur themed inflatables.
