    In the Northside (Backesto Park location) we’ll be showing Wallace & Grommit in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit on the big screen at the basketball courts at the south end of the park. Until it gets dark there will be DJ music from Northsider Victor Tapia, and a free hot dog, chips and drink for the first 500 visitors.
