7:00pm [7:00pm] Glastonbury: Outdoor Movie Night
Last year the Bodeau Realty Group of William Raveis Real Estate held their first ever outdoor movie night. We have gotten such great feedback on the event that we are deciding to run an outdoor movie series during the summer months. The movie series will consist of three movies at Riverfront Park in Glastonbury. You bring your blanket, chairs, and snacks, and we will start the movie at sundown. Each movie will be to benefit a local charity. There will be popcorn, face painting, and food trucks. There is no admission for the event, however there will be a suggested donation for fundraising.
