The second annual outdoor movie night in the city centre returns this Friday, Aug. 16 with the animated family flick Despicable Me.
The free event at Garden City Park, 6620 Garden City Rd. - hosted by City Centre Community Centre and sponsored by Lansdowne Centre, Ashton Service Group and ADESA Richmond - will also feature a car show and live performances from Mrs. Lori and the Taiko Drummers.
If that's not enough to get the family out, there will be food vendors, face painting, bouncy castles and giveaways.
There will also be popcorn, cotton candy, free coffee, door prizes and car judging.
More than 1,500 people turned out last year and one of the organizers, Matt Pitcairn, City Centre Community Association's board of directors president, is hoping even more show up this Friday.
"This event is a great free family outing, during a time when it is getting more and more expensive to take the family out," said Pitcairn.
"Our classic car show promises to have some great entries."
Registration for the car show is from 5 to 6 p.m., with the show, which is open to all cars, running from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The movie is set to start at around 9 p.m. For more information on this event and others, go to www.rccca.ca.
