The second Cherished Pets Outdoor Cinema event drew a crowd of more than 500 last weekend on one of Ocean Grove’s signature balmy summer evenings.
Pets and people traveled from as far as Melbourne to enjoy this unique local dog-friendly event that is set to become a popular annual event among the community and is hosted by Ocean Grove Connected Communities.
Set against the back drop of the Ocean Grove Park Pavilion, people set up their picnics and enjoyed a line-up of entertainment by local musicians including the Acabellas, Chelsie Annelise and Shelby Jean. As sundown approached, patrons were able to enjoy activities such as stallholders, information booths, kiddies korner and a pet photo booth. Local food vendors ensured appetites were satisfied and the Driftwood Bar provided welcome refreshments.
“This dog-friendly event shows how pets connect communities, and also allows us to raise awareness and funds for our Foundation, that supports companion pets of elderly and disabled people living independently in our community,” Cherished Pets founder Dr Alicia Kennedy said.
“We loved seeing so many dogs snuggling up with their people to watch the film, and would like to thank our event sponsors for supporting us. A huge thank you to our CP Volunteers also who make what we do possible and to everybody who turned out to make this event such a fun success.”
