OUTDOOR FAMILY MOVIE NIGHT AT BINBROOK CONSERVATION AREA

Screening of Peter Rabbit, Food Truck on site, & Lots of Fun! 

The outdoor family movie night tradition continues at Binbrook Conservation Area on Saturday, August 18, with a screening of Peter Rabbit­—the mischievous and adventurous hero who has captivated generations of readers.

“We’re excited to continue bringing this event to our community for the eighth year in a row,” says Mike Boyko, Superintendent at Binbrook Conservation Area. “Our annual movie nights are attended by over 200 guests and provide a unique opportunity for members of the community to enjoy the outdoors and an entertaining movie with other families and friends.”

Guests are encouraged to add this special event to their weekend plans or make it a daytrip to Binbrook Conservation Area. With lots to see and do including a swimming beach, children’s splash pad, picnic facilities, nature trails, play areas, FunSplash Sports Park, Boarder Pass Wakeboarding, and Staycation Watercraft Rentals, Binbrook resembles cottage country but luckily, it is also close to home.

For a small $5 admission fee, movie lovers can enjoy one serving of tasty popcorn and a fun glow-in-the-dark bracelet. Since no movie experience is complete without food and snacks, Waxy’s on Wheels Food Truck will be on-site during the day starting at Noon, with delicious food available for purchase. At the Staycation Rentals concession store visitors can also purchase ice cream and other treats.

Presented by the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority (NPCA), in partnership with the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Foundation (NPCF), Binbrook Movie Night has been generously sponsored by The Hamilton International Airport. Special guests include McMaster Children’s Hospital and Big Brothers Big Sisters Hamilton.

“What a great event for our kids! We’re grateful for our generous community, and the no-to-low cost opportunities made available for our clients and volunteers,” says Natalie Michlewicz, Manager of Communications with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Halton and Hamilton. “A big thanks to the NPCA and NPCF for inviting our charity for a complimentary movie night.”

Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets for more comfort. Overnight camping is available at $10 per vehicle for an even greater outdoor movie night experience. To reserve a spot, call 905-692-3228.
