With the end of the school year fast approaching, parents across Windsor will be looking for activities that appeal to the whole family. Following up on a successful outdoor movie season last year, Windsor Public Library is again embarking on a summer schedule of free family friendly fun at locations across the city.
Movie screenings and other fun and games continue Friday, June 28 at Mitchell Park at 399 Giles Boulevard West at 8 pm, with the screening of How to Train Your Dragon 3 scheduled to begin at sundown. (Rain date: July 5)).
