If you were in Canning Friday evening, chances are you stopped by Bruce Spicer park to enjoy an open-air market and a free screening of the Disney/Pixar hit movie, Coco, under the moon-and-star-lit sky. The Canning and Area Business Development Association (CABDA) was on hand to set up and operate the movie and help out. The Canning Recreation team supplied cool refreshment and the aroma of their freshly popped popcorn was nearly impossible to resist. It was a fabulous, fun family movie night!
There was a sizable turnout of vendors and visitors, with many families (and kids of all ages) attending the screening on such a perfect evening — not too hot or cool — under a gorgeous, summer night sky.
Before the movie, open-air vendors were displaying a lovely and interesting array of products and services, including CAPRE, Floating Bridge Centre for Learning, Little Piggies Reflexology, Monk & Nun, Mr. B’s Makery, New Hope Wesleyan Church, Petite Patrie Chocolate, and Rodan + Fields. As well, Canning Recreation had a table with information about their many services and active involvement in the community.
Gabrielle Breault and Peter Austin-Smith of Petite Patrie Chocolate were offering samples of their exquisite organic, fair trade bean-to-bar chocolate. Caution: it’s addictive!
Fun messages on the back of those awesome tee shirts!

The event was made possible thanks to the kind support of the Village of Canning, and the hard work, planning, and volunteer efforts of Canning Recreation and CABDA .
