Canning Outdoor Market and Movie Evening

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.

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!
